Grand Canyon National Park ~ Arizona, USA

November 13, 2013

On my way to Vegas, took a side trip up to the Grand Canyon National Park (GC). This was my second visit to the GC, but on this trip, I used the shuttle buses to get around. I got some pics of the Bright Angel Trail, too, which I wasn’t expecting. If I ever get to backpack the GC, for that first trip, I would probably hike down into the canyon on the South Kaibab Trail and use the Bright Angel Trail to hike up and out. That hole in the ground is impressive and about a mile deep and, as I understand, it takes a day to hike down to the Colorado River and 2-3 days to hike back out. Entry to the park is $25/per car, but my Senior Pass got me in free.

Road Trip (Day 4 of 4): Big Meadows ~ Colorado, USA

September 23, 2013

Headed east on Hwy. 50 towards Blue Mesa Reservoir. Just before reaching the reservoir, we cut south on County Road (CR) 25 (Blue Mesa Road). CR 25 is a dirt road that runs through part of the Southern Ute Reservation and we followed it for 15 or so miles to Hwy. 149. Then south on Hwy. 149 through Slumgullion Pass, where we finally saw a good bit of snow from the recent storm. Then on to Lake City, Creede, and on over to South Fork. Then south on Hwy. 160 to Big Meadows Reservoir where we camped at Big Meadows Campground for our last night on the road. Elevation at the campground is around 9,300 feet.
