Drove to Page and spent a night at a hotel. Washed our clothes. We went to Antelope Canyon the next day even though it was suppose to be cloudy, since the day after it was going to rain. We decided on Lower Antelope Canyon. Definitely could have done with out every person in our tour group, but such is life. We were lucky enough to get some sun part way through our tour. After the tour we went to Lone Rock Beach and camped next to Lake Powell. Its a cheaper camping alternative. I was hoping to get away from the RV people. But when we got there there were two huge RVs on the edge of the water, perfectly positioned to ruin our view. Got to hear the coyotes at night here too. But they sounded much farther away than the ones in JT.
We hiked down into the canyon to the bright angel campgrounds via the Kaibob trail. Dylans pack was 37lbs mine was 32. 6.9 miles in. 4,654 change in elevationThe hike in was great being able to see each rock layer close up and the change in weather too. Camped for one night by the colorado river. Hike out via the bright angel trial. 9.3 miles out around 4,314 feet in elevation change! Took 6hrs and 45min. I got stomach issue between the last 3 to 1.5 miles. But it went away for the last mile! I'm amazed that I did this. It is such an intiment experience of the Grand Canyon.
About to head up there. Check out this website:
Some photos from the same maloof museum and drive out to joshua tree.
Today I start my trip through the South West. We are sitting in our apartment trying to figure out if we have packed everything we need. There will a lot of camping on this trip so to bring everything we will have to check three bags, oh my. Time to get some breakfast. I will be traveling with my alter ego, if you are wondering about the we.
