Good photo of Colby, Cameron and Kari. Taken during Cameron's November visit to Denver. The photo was taken in the backyard of Colby's new house. Cameron got a taste of winter weather while he was there.
This is home for the next few months while we're employed at Pueblo El Mirage Golf & RV Resort. We're just NW of Phoenix and so we'll have to get used to big city traffic and amenities. Could be interesting.
Montezuma Castle is a settlement built by the Southern Sinagua, a prehistoric culture that once flourished in the Verde Valley of central Arizona.The Southern Sinagua were skilled farmers growing corn, beans, squash, and cotton.
Our 2nd day in the park we took the Kaibab Trail/green route shuttle to the eastern side of the south rim. This photo was taken at Yaki Point view point.
The Grand Canyon overwhelms your senses. Its story tells of geologic processes played out over unimaginable time spans as a unique combination of size, color, & erosional forms...277 river miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and a mile deep.
Good view of the Colorado river from viewpoint along the Hermits Rest shuttle route. By 5 or 6 million years ago the Colorado River flowed across the Colorado Plateau on its way from the Rocky Mountains to the Gulf of California. Each rain washed desert soil into the river. The heavy sedimented river created a powerful tool for erosion.
West end point of the Hermits Rest shuttle. Stop offers great vistas and small gift shop.
The red shuttle bus route, called Hermits Rest Route, takes you 7 miles west along the south rim from the Grand Canyon Village. The horses & mules are heading back up to the south rim on the Bright Angel trail. The trail head is in the Grand Canyon Village area.
We saw several Big Horn Sheep during our stay. One of the shuttle drivers said he hadn't seen one in 2 yrs, so maybe we were just lucky.
