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.

Walk about

01 Looking through the Pines to the RV NR GRCA NP AZ (797x1024)

Home in the woods

On our last day off Tuesday, Mike and I took a walk on the Transept  trail from where we live to the Grand Lodge.

02 Deva, Brahama & Zoroaster temples from Transept trail NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x764)

This is a forested western rim walk with great views of Grand Canyon.

03 Mule deer below Transept trail NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x768)

Even the Mule deer enjoy the view.

04 Huge fallen tree across gully by Transept trail NR GRCA NP AZ (768x1024)

We occasionally walked off trail through the dense forest. No, we didn’t walk over the tree bridge.

05 Pinedrops along Transept trail NR GRCA NP AZ (768x1024)

And saw these Pinedrops almost hidden on the forest floor.

06 Brachiopod fossil along Transept trail NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x768)

Plus saw quite a few fossils like this brachiopod embedded in the limestone.

07 Head of Transept canyon from Transept trail overlook NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x768)

This is the head of Transept Canyon.

08 Juniper snap against stormy sky from BAP trail NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x743)

Then we walked out to Bright Angel Point.

09 Mike looking over canyon from BAP trail NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x766)

And enjoyed more canyon views.

Super walk--thanks for takeing us along.
Pinedrops are quite interesting--I had to do a search on them and yup there they were.

Yes that pond is on my place. I try to keep it as natural as possible except for one place where I have a bench---by the willow of course. MB

I have never been a walker, bicycle yes, but with views like this I could certainly change my ways! Diane

Gaelyn: Boy that Mike is getting braver. Tell him not to brave my friend, just remember what happened to his buddy.

Sweetie, What made that walk so beautiful was that it was with you! Side by side,walking in step with each other...This place is so beautiful, but with out you here, it would be just another canyon... This life of mine is wonderful, but with out you in it, it wouldn't be quite as bright!
Thank you for adding to the joy in my life, and freely giving of your heart...
my hope is that I bring at as much joy to you as you do me!

Are those Pinedarops a fungi Gaelyn or is it the sap from the tree?

What a wonderful place to work. You are so lucky to be there in all that fresh air and beautiful skies.

Pinedrops live in relationship with the Ponderosa Pine's mycorrhizal fungi.

This is definitely a better walkabout than the one I do regularly in my suburban/urban jungle! :)
