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.

Beautiful day for a drive to Grand Canyon

I dressed for the occasion. Hey it’s cold at 7,000 feet.

Left the house about 11:30 this morning, no rush. Drove past the “lovers” boulders just before Prescott.

Then on past Prescott towards Chino, the other side of these mountains.

By the time I approached Williams signs of winter were quite apparent.

And then I headed north into the park.

I arrived about 4pm, parked and headed for the rim where I saw El Tovar throwing out a blanket of white.

That’s the North Rim over there showing snowy streaks of white down the canyon walls.

When we visited the canyon it was in January, but the weather was mild that year, so no snow. This must be a treat for you.

Stop by my blog if you've got the time. I've got an award for you. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy reading about your adventures.
