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.

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.

Headed out to hike

01 S Kaibab trail, training, SR GRCA NP AZ pano

Don’t look for me at any mall on Black Friday. Instead Mike and I are driving to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. It might look like Christmas up there as they’ve gotten a little snow.

02 S Kaibab trail from trailhead, training, SR GRCA NP AZ

Then in the morning we’ll head down the South Kaibab trail, 7 miles, and camp for two nights at Bright Angel campground.

03 Building S Kaibab trail sign, training, SR GRCA NP AZ

How very exciting to go hiking in the Grand Canyon in November! I can't wait to see blog posts about what it was like and what you saw. :)

Good hiking to you both, I'm sure it will be great if a little on the chilly side.

Zane said...

That first picture is absolutely incredible. The balance of colors is really nice: not too much red or green. (It always seems to be very green when I visit...)
It must be really exciting to be able to camp in the canyon, as opposed to spending all day on the rim!
ORCA is good, and we are indeed still working on that project - hoping to be done by the spring. My mum says hi back! :)

You create a great space. Wonderful photos.

Elaine said...

This is so much better than spending Black Friday in the stores! I think being as far away as you possibly can from the shopping frenzy is the sane thing to do.

Robin Easton said...

Both you and the life you are living are just magical, alive, wondrous and so inspiring.

There is so much to see and experience while we are here on Earth. It is an endlessly beautiful planet. Your photos and writing are truly lovely and invite adventure.

I so enjoy your vibrant and free spirit and resonate deeply with it.

Thank you for the beauty you are and the beauty you share. I am grateful. So grateful.

I know you and Mike are having a GRAND adventure as I write this, Gaelyn!

Bibi said...

Would never have thought of you being in a mall on Black Friday or ever, for that matter. Thrift shops(like me!), yes, but malls, no!

Glad you didn't go to either place, for this photo is stunning.....

Firefly said...

I hope you guys are having a stunning trip and that those camera batteries hold out for you to take tons of pics to come and show us.

Kathiesbirds said...

Gaelyn, Have fun! I'll be missing you!

katney said...

Brrrr. Hope you got through the Black Friday lines at the park entrance okay andpacked nice and warm. I am looking forward to snow pictures.

Sally in WA said...

Hope you had a great weekend camping! You won't find me in a mall on Black Friday either!!

Craver Vii said...

Yeah, I avoided the malls, too. But I hung out with the fam and a few close friends. I hope you enjoyed the hike. Be safe.

Ruth said...

MUCH more beautiful than any mall! The first picture is spectacular.

Natural Moments said...

Looking forward to hearing about that which inspired you both upon your trip back into and beyond time.

You have the right idea on how to spend your days...

Janie said...

Much, much better than shopping on Black Friday!
I look forward to hearing the details on the hike.
