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.

SWF – Sunset from the canyon

DSCF7425 (800x600)

Sunset over the Colorado River from South Kaibab trail

Hiking into Grand Canyon provides so many different experiences and stimuli as to put my mind and body on the verge of overload. After four days surrounded by the ancient stone walls, coming back to the South Rim world slapped culture shock right in my face. I’d have returned to the abyss if my legs would have carried me.

Gorgeous pic, Gaelyn. I'm currently reading a book called Death at Grand Canyon. Fascinating reading. Depressing, but fascinating all the same.

I can just imagine how far removed from civilisation one can feel in the canyon and that returning is the low light of the trip. Any trip really.

I'm with you all the way Gaelyn, give me the wilds any day and your can take civilized trappings and sink them into the ocean . . . on second thought, better not, that would kill the fish.
