Something went glitchy with my last post about Bryce Canyon, so we’ll see if I end up having to do the whole thing over. In the meantime though, I’ve been at Zion National Park. One of the single most beautiful places I’ve seen. I wish I could describe the rock faces better. They are not […]Read more "Day 19-20-21 Zion National Park. Utah"
We drove to a campsite the night before going to Bryce Canyon. It has been raining for a few hours so we spent some time “indoors” (read: in the car) for a while. After setting up in a windy wet mess (glad that I am in the car for bedtime) we went to sleep, only […]Read more "Day 18 Bryce Canyon Utah"
During days 16 and 17, we decided to try to keep it easy by spending some time at camp instead of out doing things. Also the area was huge, but most things were hard to reach down roads which were hard-pressed to be counted as roads. So most of what we saw was an area […]Read more "Day 16 & 17 Vermilion Cliffs and Grand Staircase-Escalante Arizona and Utah"
On day 14 after some driving, cold, and a little snow, we made it to the Grand Canyon. It really is huge. So huge that it’s incomprehensible. I heard several people say that it just looks like a picture. I tend to agree with them. To give some scale, I managed to get a photo […]Read more "Day 14 and 15 The Grand Canyon! Arizona"
In an attempt to cut the drive to the Grand Canyon in half, we headed toward Coconino National Forest. Along the way, we saw the exit for Walnut Canyon and decided to take a quick side trip. Walnut Canyon was a cute little stop, but one definitely couldn’t spend a whole day there. From there […]Read more "Day 13, Walnut Canyon and Cathedral Rock, Arizona"
A friend had suggested to Steve that he visit the Painted Desert, and I had Petrified Forest on one of my original itineraries, so we decided to make a side trip since we had skipped the Sonoran Desert (apparently the proximity to the border makes it a bit of a pain to camp around). But […]Read more "Day 12, Petrified Forest, Painted Desert, and Oak Campground, Arizona"
One of the places I was super excited to go to was Seguaro National park. And I didn’t even know or have any conception of how BIG those cacti actually are! I stole a picture from Steve with me in it just so you could know too. Tonto national forest was mostly just a simple […]Read more "Day 11, Seguaro National Park, Tonto National Forest, Arizona"
