I woke up feeling better this morning, not 100%, but better. Good enough to get out of the house today after spending two days indoors. It was even warm enough to wear shorts and T's.....YAY!
We decided we would go look at the canyon again today at some of the overlooks we haven't been to as yet.
I wish pictures were in 3-D so that you could see how truly magnificent the Grand Canyon is.
We got to one overlook and decided that instead of taking the shuttle to the next overlook we would get there by foot.
So we set out and
hiked strolled a rugged smoothly paved footpath for 8 miles 1.5 miles. Some beautiful scenery along the way to be sure.
Bob got way too close to the edge for my comfort. NO one has ever survived the 300 foot sheer drop from the canyon ledge.
Here's my dead tree picture for the day....darn you LaVon, I spent more time looking at dead trees today than I did at the canyon.
I did come across this tree and took the picture even though it was alive. Now that's a tree trunk!
I started getting warm and asked Bob how much further he thought we had to go. He told me he'd check it out and let me know.
Some final pictures of the canyon.
This is one trip I am so glad we made!
When we got back to the camp site I noticed how many rental RV's came in. I wonder how many of these renters will become full time RV'ers? It has to start somewhere. All three of these are rental units and there are more on the road behind us and a few further up the hill from where our site is.
We're moving tomorrow, going towards the Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest. Once again I don't know if we'll have a Internet connection.
Today we should hit 26,000 on the counter. I am truly amazed at fast it is turning.
Will post when we can....just keep checking back.
