I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.


Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

Sky Watch Friday - Arizona Sunset

Sunset over Fivemile Mountain
Wednesday afternoon, at the advice of a BLM person at the Paria Contact Station I drove south on House Rock Valley Road towards a recommended hike.

House Rock Valley Road
The 3.5 miles (5.6 km) of gravel, washboard, potholes, big rounded rocks, tall pointy rocks and multiple dried ruts required a 30 minute drive.

The Cockscomb
And that was just to a place to camp, in the middle of everywhere, for free.

House Rock Valley Road
In the morning I still had 4.5 more miles of the same to get to the Wire Pass Trailhead.

Oh WOW!! Would you just look at that header!! LOVE it!!

What an ideal place to camp!! Just the sort I would like to spend some time in.

I am wondering what made those circles around the 2 clumps of grass? :)

Looks like the perfect place to camp. Places like this are why I appreciate truck campers so much. :)

Karen said...

Gaelyn, you are not afraid. Next time, let me know where exactly you are going and when you are supposed to be back so I can send out the troops if you don't show up. We love you, you know.

Love it, all of it, the landscapes, the dust and particularly the grass tufts sweeping the sand.

Amanda said...

I like the third picture:
"Is it the wind writing something for us on the sand,or is it the plant?"

Wow, these are awesome. I had to smile at the shot of the dust rising up in the road. Takes me back to my camping days and sand-railing. These shots make me miss camping. :-(

The color contrasts are so vivid down there right now. It must be amazing at night. Loving these!
