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.

It's always so strange to me looking at the canyon rim. My intellect knows that this is a CANYON but my warped brain keeps wondering why there is a flat line when I'm looking at mountains. But I do love looking at your photos.

I do love the Canyon and wish I could go visit again -- it's been a while! Your photos are the next best thing, Gaelyn! So much breathtaking beauty!! Hope you have a great week!

The more I see of the Grand Canyon on your posts the more I would love to see it first hand. I don't think that will ever happen though, so I will continue enjoying it through you eyes. Thanks. Diane

I spent an afternoon at the North Rim once. It was too short a time. You should really need to go down into the canyon. Love your shots. :)

Wonderful photos. Can't wait to get back to the Canyon.

Thanks for these amazing snow-dusted photos, Gaelyn. I hiked down Bright Angel and came up Hermits when we did our 7 day backpack. Brings back memories. I remember taking the shuttle to the showers and sharing a bag of quarters with my friends for our first hot wash in a week.

I have enjoyed that trail several times and each time it seems like a new trail. I always hike to Hermits Rest and shuttle back to the VC. I can never get enough of that wonderful trail. Thanks for the winter time view; yes, it seems quite peaceful and solitary compared to summer.

I look forward to your comments on the Symposium when you get time. Meanwhile, enjoy the Canyon!

I've been to the south rim a couple times and it has been a zoo. The winter time sounds like a much better time to visit.

I enjoyed looking at your beautiful winter views of the Grand Canyon. It is such a majestic landscape. El Tovar must have had a nice big fire going in their big lobby fireplace!

Diana said...

How special it must have been to visit the South Rim in the winter! Great shots.

Ebie said...

Breathtaking! That's why its called one of the great wonders!

Many times I have visited but on a tour bus. I want to to someday do it on our own driving!

What wonderful everyday views. We all should be so fortunate.

Regarding your question on my blog with the baby goat. Yes all kinds of animals at one time or another get to come in the house. I've had baby piggies in the kitchen and chickens and lambs and once years ago my eldest brought her pony up the front stairs and into the front room. All in a days works---LOL.

The colors do look different in the winter...and that little touch of snow...

No wonder Grand Canyon is one of the Seven Wonders of the World!

I love traveling this way!!!

Cheers from Cottage Country!

I recognize the views and they are as spectacular in winter as in the fall. But I am sure there is quite the windchill in spite of the warm-looking sun.
