I walked around the South Rim at The Village in the afternoon then took The Pink Jeep Sunset Grand Canyon Tour. This tour is the total East Rim Drive experience. It stops at the prominent vistas, some more remote as we went east from Grand Canyon Village to the Desert View Watchtower. Our Pink Jeep Tour guide showed us the indigenous fauna, flora and provide captivating geological and human history. The Desert View Watchtower has murals depicting scenes of Hopi culture and four flights of stairs to climb to the top. Then you may peer down thousands of feet and witness the mighty Colorado River where it curves and heads to the west. On a clear day you can see over 100 miles!

i took my family to Yosemite Valley in early spring of 2011. i was thinking green meadows and new spring flowers. It snowed this year all the way through to June it turned out (snow storm blowing thru, then clear days). <br><br> We were the first people in the valley after it was evacuated for a week. i was told there were maybe 100 people in the whole valley when we arrived there. The trails were open, they were simply covered in snow by several feet (at least) deep. i will not be posting any images of my family here. We had a marvelous time, and you will have to take my word for it. How could anyone not have the weekend of their dreams in such beauty?
On 21 August my grandchildren had a Pirate Birthday Party. Madoc and i dressed as pirates and played with all the children. It\'s on u-tube somewhere\'s on my daughter\'s channel. Then we were off to explore Yosemite National Park. First a view stop over Mono Lake was irresistible. Then on down the 395 to the east entrance to Yosemite National Park. We traveled in on Tioga Road, as it was late August and the road is open. <br><br> First on our list was The Giant Sequoia Grove <br><br><br><br> Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias <br><br> Tuolumne Grove Trail <br><br> Distance: 2.5 miles (4 km) round trip <br><br> Elevation at trailhead: 6,200 feet (1,860 meters) Elevation Gain: 400 feet (120 meters) elevation loss to the grove. <br><br> Why visit the Tuolumne Grove? If you\'re a dessert-first kind of person, the Tuolumne Grove trail was made for you: the entire trip to the grove is downhill. Oh, and the grove itself contains a couple dozen mature Giant Sequoias, including one you can walk through (although it\'s dead - but then, you would be too). <br><br> Hiking Time: 1.5 - 2.5 hours <br><br><br><br> Second stop:<br><br> Tenaya Lake <br><br> Distance: 2.5 miles (4 km) loop around the lake <br><br> Elevation at trailhead: 8,150 feet (2,480 meters) Elevation Gain: none <br><br> Hiking Time: 1 - 2 hours <br><br> Why visit Tenaya Lake? A day on the sand at the east end of Tenaya Lake, where you can de=stress with a cadre of fellow sun worshipers on most summer days. If not a sun worshiper, sitting on the north side looking out over the crystal clear lake doesn\'t suck too much - ever. Then you can head to the west end of the lake, where the view back across the lake to the granite promontories that surround it is about as sure a postcard shot as you\'ll ever find. <br><br><br><br> The next day we were back bright and early, on Sunday to explore. <br><br>First stop:<br><br> Tuolumne Meadows <br><br> Distance: 2 miles (3.2 km) more or less; it depends on how much wandering you want to do <br><br> Elevation at trailhead: 8,500 feet (2,550 meters) Elevation Gain: none to speak of <br><br> Why visit Tuolumne Meadows? There\'s just something about a meadow that\'s good for your peace of mind. And this is one of the great meadows, nearly two miles (3.2 km) long, with a river (the Tuolumne) winding through it and a variety of picturesque granite peaks and domes surrounding it. <br><br><br><br> Second stop:<br><br><br><br> North Dome<br><br> Distance: 8.8 miles (14.2 km) round trip<br><br> Elevation at trailhead: 8,100 feet (2,470 meters)<br><br> North Dome Elevation: 7,540 feet (2,300 meters)<br><br> Hiking Time: 4 - 6 hours <br><br> Why Hike to North Dome? You haven\'t really seen Half Dome (figuratively, at least) until you\'ve stood on North Dome and looked across Yosemite Valley at it. It\'s an incredible closeup view. North Dome also offers an unsurpassed view of Clouds Rest, a peak that tends to get obscured by scene-stealing Half Dome when you\'re sightseeing from Glacier Point or Yosemite Valley. <br><br><br><br> These were two fantastic, serene days, the stuff that feeds your soul and lifts your spirit. i highly recommend these easy, yet supreme hiking outings.<br><br>
Dale from www.seriousbondage.com, and i traded off driving duty taking my car from Los Angeles, California to The Grand canyon Nation Park arriving around 2 pm on Friday, 6 August 2010. <br><br> The Grand Canyon is vast, majestic, serene, the light hitting the rock ever-changing to captivate your eye. It\'s magical. <br><br> Friday afternoon, Dale and i walked the South Rim from El Tovar about an hour, then headed back. i went out just before dinner for some sunset shots, then walked around the lodges, and was delighted to see the deer (one doe had two fawns following her). <br><br> Up early on Saturday morning, Dale and i planned to hike down into the canyon on Bright Angel Trail. It was sprinkling. It didn\'t blow past, and instead rained heavily all day. Still we made it down 3.5 miles, with the mules passing us 3 times. Great looking strong animals. The colors were incredible as i hiked down, trying my best not step in the huge puddles that were deeper than my hiking boots. It became a progressively muddier trail. i was very glad i hiked down into the canyon though because i got a perspective how big it is. 3.5 miles only took us an insignificant amount down into the canyon. It was the first time i realized just how very far away everything i was looking at was. <br><br> Sunday the weather was cool but the shower storm held away from the south rim. Dale and i hiked 8 miles west out to Hermits Point and then back to El Tovar, then east out to the end of the trail on the South Rim (about 4 miles). <br><br> Monday morning, Dale and i walked along the roads and paths in the residence, finding the hospitality suite of the mules, and a peaceful walk through the woodlands. <br><br> It is a spectacular place, simply breath taking and beautiful to see, touch , smell. i highly recommend it.<br><br>
i rented a mid-size car for $15.00 a day from Hertz thru priceline.com. Madoc flew into the Las Vegas airport Friday evening where i picked him up and drove to the Zion Lodge in Zion National Park. It was an easy drive, even in the dark. <br><br> Saturday morning we hiked the Lower Emerald Pool (1.2 miles - Easy with minor drop-offs. Paved trail takes you to lower pool and small waterfalls.) and Middle Emerald Pool (2.0 miles - Moderate with steep drop-offs. Loop trail to lower and middle pools.), plus the North Fork Trail but returning back to Emerald Pools and returning to Zion Lodge. <br><br>At twilight we took off to Weeping Rock (.5 miles - Short, but steep with minor drop-offs. Paved trail ends at a rock alcove with dripping springs. Hanging gardens of wildflowers decorate the walls in spring and summer. Trailside exhibits.), The Temple of Sinawava (2.0 miles - Riverside Walk - Easy. Minor drop-offs. Paved trail follows the Virgin River along the bottom of a narrow canyon. Hanging gardens of wildflowers in spring and summer. Trailside exhibits.), and The Narrows. <br><br>Sunday morning we took off for Angels Landing (5 miles - Strenuous with steep drop-offs and narrow trail. Not for anyone fearful of heights. Ends at summit high above Zion Canyon. Last 0.5 mi (0.8 km) follows a steep, narrow ridge; chains have been added.). <br><br> Zion National Park is located along the edge of a region known as the Colorado Plateau. The rock layers have been uplifted, tilted, and eroded, forming a feature called the Grand Staircase, a series of colorful cliffs stretching between Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon. The bottom layer of rock at Bryce Canyon is the top layer at Zion, and the bottom layer at Zion is the top layer at the Grand Canyon.br><br> Just before we were to cross The Arch, it started to down pour. Since we were now looking at wind, rain and very slippery rock, we were good with how far we had hiked and turned back. <br><br>The late afternoon was spent in Springdale looking about. That evening we went to the lodge lawn and did some Star Gazing in the vast darkness which made the stars shine clearly. <br><br>i found Zion Canyon indeed serene and peaceful. The beauty and natural energy fed my soul. It was incredible.
