After being static in Prescott for a couple weeks I was excited to get on the road and have some action. I was feeling my groove and my Van was driving fantastic.
I highly recommend this Bencmark Maps Atlas regardless of what state you’re in.
And the Non-Technical Canyon Hiking Guide to the Colorado Plateau has been my Bible and my secret for exploring the Southwest
Horseshoe Bend was spectacular and exceeded my expectations. It was elbow to elbow tourists and you had to wait your turn to snag a photo.
It felt good that they asked me to take their photo. The place was crazy busy but I think they picked up on my calm demeanor. I sent it to one of the family members through email and they were very grateful.
After waiting out some rain and getting resupplies in the town of Page, I eaked out of town about 25 miles and found this incredible free campsite. It’s not very often I get chills from where I am staying
Spending this much time outdoors and in nature you really get connected. I love how time slows down and you forget what day it is.
Tools of the Trade. I use these items on a daily basis to do things like pickup trash dig cat holes, pound in stakes, and rake rocks away. I use the rope to usually make a closed line and dry or air them out.
All in all I stayed here for about a week. I enjoyed the relaxation and especially enjoyed the two hikes I found. Wiregrass Canyon and some unknown hike next to camp were very rugged and exciting. I also found boldering nearby but unfortunately did not have my climbing shoes with me
The camping was spectacular and felt very adventurous. I would love to explore here more and hope you come back soon.
