Another beautiful day with friends

 Up at 9 o'clock this morning to a chilly 43 degree start to the day.  Luckily, just a little breeze and plenty of sun, so it wasn't long before it was comfortable in a jacket for our morning coffee get together.

During our discussions, we decided to run up to the slot canyon I visited the other day.  I would be their guide since this was Tom and Deb's first time.  At 1:30, Tom, Deb, me and Deb jumped in Tom's Jeep for the short drive.  Riley didn't feel up to going and stayed behind.

When we got to the road leading down into the bottom of the canyon, I walked ahead around the corner of the steep incline to make sure no one was coming up, because there is only room for one vehicle at a time.

I don't have many pictures because I was just here the other day and took lots of them for my blog.  You might want to check out On a long and lonesome highway.... and Celebrating the Dance for their views of the slot canyon.

Here are the few I took this time.

Poor Yuma stayed home, so he was not happy.  When we returned home, he was happy again.  We sat outside and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon till it was time to call it a day.  

At 6 o'clock it was time to fix dinner and watch Gold Rush.  Now, it is time to hit the hay.  I notice there are not nearly as many ORV (Off Road Vehicles) down below, so hopefully, they don't fire off fireworks and scare Yuma this weekend.  We have a great day planned for tomorrow, so stop by.

Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Very cool hike, not much better than a good slot canyon hike!

  2. Some day I'll tell you about the slot canyon we anchored our boat in near Lake Mead. Very cool places those canyons.

  3. Yuma just rested from all of the excitement. Thanks for playing tour guide.


  4. There always seem to be more beautiful pictures of the canyon each time you go. I hope everyone else enjoyed it.

  5. You're a great tour guide! Looks like an awesome place to visit! :) Great pictures!

  6. Love the pictures! It's nice to have travel companions for those hikes.
