There are numerous parks to visit, and every kind of outdoor activity to satisfy young and old alike.
Today we headed out to another two parks, and came back with a memory card full of photos.
First, we visited Dead Horse State Park.
An added benefit of visiting the parks at this time of year is that you have the parks to yourself, and the rangers have time to offer their advice on sites to see.
Teresa and I were amazed at what we were seeing. Remember, we are from the flat ol' prairies of Saskatchewan !!
It was windy today, and the fine red sand was blowing, making the photos look a little hazy.
Teresa would get pretty nervous if I got too close to any edge ... I guess that means she still loves me !!
From here, it was only a few minutes drive to Canyonlands.
Wow, we sure wish our photos would do the landscape justice.
Most of Canyonlands is viewed by driving from one observation point to the next, because it is so vast.
Even so, there are some good opportunities for hiking, and we were working up a sweat a couple of times !!
Watching the news lately, there is a real winter storm headed our way, that is forcing us to change our itinerary.
We were hoping to spend a few days at the Grand Canyon, but they are predicting very cold nights, with the occasional snow fall.
As a result, we are going to pack up tomorrow morning, and make a run for warmer weather !!
Sure hope this cumbersome rig is nimble enough to out run the storm !!
