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.

Arizona Trail

01 AZ trail NR GRCA NP AZ (768x1024)

I have now walked two short parts of the Arizona trail with Mike and another on my own to the North Rim Lookout Tower. So far the trail has been old two-track road.

02 Mike's backpack weighing 31 lbs NR GRCA NP AZ (768x1024)

Mike wanted to test out his backpack for a future canyon hike. I was concerned about weight.

03 Brachiopod fossil AZ trail NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x768)


We always find fossils.

04 Mike fossil sponge bowling AZ trail NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x768)

Mike invented fossil sponge bowling along the trail. Hey, maybe it will catch on.

05 Unknown mushroom with gridded tracks AZ trail NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x746)

Of course we saw some mushrooms. Looks like this one met a truck boot.

06 Bolete mushroom AZ trail NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x768)

And this is another view of Papa Smurf’s house.

07 Picnic food (1024x966)

Mike packed a delightful picnic.

And we enjoyed the forest around us.

09 Crooked Aspen at picnic spot off AZ trail NR GRCA NP AZ 1of2 (768x1024)

How I love the dancing Aspens. And Mike too.

I find your posts most interesting Gaelyn - seems as though there is so much mountain and hiking to be done in your neck of the woods.

PS. Thanks for always posting on my blog - comments always appreciated.

Looks like you took a nice outing.

Sounds like a wonderful day out, and the picnic looks yummy. Diane

But - does Mike dance? Especially after carrying that heavy pack (and bowling...). On the other hand, he does fix a great looking lunch. Loved the hike, Gaelyn.

I think next time I'll put more rocks in my pack to get better exercise... LOL

Pat said...

Hey, these are great, and amusing, too. Makes me want to hike. How much exactly did your backpack weigh?

What fun you two are having and thanks for sharing it with us---long distance.
I wonder if sponge bowling will catch on. MB

That aspen trunk is just amazing. You have to wonder how it made so many turns in one short lifetime!
That lunch looks great. Mine aren't nearly that good. I want Mike to pack my lunch on my next outing.
