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.

Oh...wow...man....I need so much to see that area again. It gets into your soul, the Grand Canyon and all the surrounding areas. We drove past the Painted Desert but didn't have time to stop, dang it. Oh...........wow...............

Gorgeous shots - makes me wish I was there! Was the S Rim cold? We're due for another storm here in CO, but (hopefully) we'll miss it by leaving early tomorrow AM! CA or Bust!

Great shots but I totally understand being tired of
s-n-o-w! We actually had rain last night.

Great photographs. I remember Lee's Ferry from when I was a kid before the dam closed its gates. The San Francisco peaks always make me nostalgic from when I was a kid and when we would go to Flagstaff to visit friends.

For some reason that "pile" of coloured sand seems familiar to me... So does that view of the peaks!
BTW, Thank you for the note! It took me back to the "coodie catcher"...

Carolyn Ford said...

These are wonderful and I especially LOVE the view of that beautiful rock in the Painted Desert! Wow! Oh, Wow! I want to spend more time in that area with my camera!

Elaine said...

It is definitely time for the snow to stop! There must be some kind of Native American dance that could be done.....

Martha Z said...

You, too, enjoyed some beautiful clear skies. These shots are amazing. When I have visited there has always been a haze to scatter the light and wash out the colors. I bet there were a lot of days like this before we started to pollute the air.
Now I'm going to scroll up and savor these again.
