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.

SS – Fall along Bright Angel Creek

In the bottom of the Grand Canyon along the main corridor rim-to-rim trail Bright Angel Creek joins the mighty Colorado River.

In 1869, Major John Wesley Powell named the clear waters of Bright Angel Creek in contrast to the muddy Colorado River and a tributary upstream he’d named the Dirty Devil.

Beautiful photo...I do want to get back to the Grand Canyon.

I started following you blog more recently and very much enjoy. I am a huge national park fan and would love to become a ranger one day.
