Lisa and I took a road trip through some National Parks in possible preparation for expanding our operations to some of the other national parks in Utah, Arizona, and other localities in California. Our first stop was in Lone Pine, CA where it was VERY COLD the night we arrived, but we were greeted by a spectacular sunrise with the morning light on the Sierra escarpment.
We went into the Alabama Hills and took a short walk to an arch which was quite photogenic.
We spent several nights in Death Valley, then moved on to Zion National Park where it had recently snowed, so our first morning there was quite picturesque with snow on the canyon rim.
We found snow and ice on several of the trails, so we didn’t do all the hiking that we wanted.
Next we visited Bryce Canyon (not really a canyon but the eroded edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau). Spectacular, nonetheless.
We continued on to Wupatki National Monument, and ancient Anasazi settlement then on to Grand Canyon’s South Rim.
Our last stop was Joshua Tree National Park where we hiked to a beautiful palm grove in a desert canyon before we headed home.
