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.

Glad you're getting some rain, Gaelyn! Those skies look threatening. Love the green Colorado River shot!

It sounds like you finally got a bit of monsoon weather but perhaps not as much as you had been hoping for.
I infer from what you have written that you will finally get a chance to raft the Colorado. I hope so. My trip was one of the highlights of my life.

The Painted Desert must really be something special to experience with beautiful skies like that.

Looks like a fun trip, even if a little stormy some of the time.
We're still getting regular monsoon storms.

We wound up only stopping in Flag for one quick night (and no jaunt to the Canyon), so this is making me jones for a nice three-day weekend there sometime soon!
