Thank you! Yes, it was a great experience, as it had been before and will be again! 8 ) I highly recommend the volunteer program to those that have the time and interest. Thanks for taking the time to check it out through my postings here!
Thanks for the greenie. It sure was a brisk day. I wish we had stopped to visit but staying warm was pretty important - especially that far from the trailhead. Hopefully our paths will cross again soon.
I had been a little leery of the Grand Canyon because I thought it would be overrun by tourists. My wife knew better. It's vast, and with a little planning you can find your own private magic places, especially "out of season." You'll love it, and thanks.
