Grand Canyon - Grandview Trail

Since I can't find the pictures from my trip to Yuma during the record heat wave back in 2007, I'm going to post some more from my visit to the Grand Canyon just a month earlier.

This was a hike down the Grandview Trail.

Allow extra hiking time because of trail conditions. Plan on taking twice as long to hike up as it took to hike down.

In my case, I hiked down for about 1 3/4 hours, and back up in 2. I was taking pictures on the way down or there would have been a bigger discrepancy.

I'm hoping to have pictures from Mount Taylor in a few weeks, as I have to visit the area for work.

These images remind me of a conversation with a co-worker from long ago... after discussing his many times going down into the Grand Canyon, there was a long pause... enough for him to think the conversation was probably over, when I responded with:

"Have you ever gone down on a mule?"

This was followed by a shocked silence...

A quite lovely woman said she needed my fingers the other day. To push the elevator button because her hands were full.

Those are beautiful, thunder! Just awesome. I've never been out there.

...I never get to go anywhere...

Thanks BG.

By the way, for pics 48 and 49, I was sitting out on a big rock, edging over as close as I dared.

If you really cared about me, you would have invited me.

Because an age-restricted LIHTC property in Yuma needed their construction loan converted to a permanent loan, Gregor.
