Description

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.

What a difference a day makes - Walhalla Plateau

I worked out on the Walhalla Plateau two days in a row. There is often an afternoon Ranger talk at the Walhalla overlook, one of three places on the North Rim where you can see...

Can't help but think that the environments down stream are now rarely getting their vitamins that the red earth has to offer.

Very interesting Gaelyn.

How wonderful that you have a front row seat to the earth changes! Although I suppose the earth changes everywhere, even weeds growing up in cracks in the Wal-mart parking lot, but...this is way better!

We've seen some of those rock outlines on Powell Plateau. I suppose they were built at the same time. Don't know if Powell Plateau ever had year round inhabitants, though, because there's not much water after the snowmelt pools are gone.
Cool granary!

Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I always enjoy "meeting" fellow bloggers. Your blog is fascinating! What an awesome way to live - one national park to another, season after season. My husband and I love visiting national parks. In fact, The Grand Canyon is one we plan to visit in the next few years. I've been there about 3 times and LOVE it, but he's never seen it. Your blog was more incentive to go. :) I look forward to perusing your blog in the future, too. Have a wonderful weekend.

Man, that is interesting. I could hang out there all day and listen and wonder about the Old Ones. I could learn a lot. MB

Beautiful pictures, they brought to mind my trip to the Grand Canyon last year.

I have had this song running around in my head since I saw the heading of your post this morning Gaelyn. LOL!!

What an amazing job you have Gaelyn, well it isn't really a job, is it, but a way of life. Love the picture at the head of your blog, and to think that it must have been under water once [I think] and the work of eons to create that sculpture.

Gaelyn: I was watching a Discovery Channel special on the Grand Canyon and when they showed the rangers I thought of you.

I can't believe you work in such a gorgeous "office" every day. If I were you, I'd probably be black and blue from pinching myself!

Jazz said...

You know, because of you the next time I go the Grand Canyon, I'll see it in a whole different light.

Oh and that header picture is grea!
