Weary...Body and Soul

Have you ever sat down to write a blog entry and just stared at the keyboard?  That's how I feel right now.  I have so much I'd like to say, but the brain is not cooperating.  We had a great stay in Page, Az and look forward to our next visit.  I spent two and a half days just wandering around in the desert, saw some of the most amazing formations and an awesome slot canyon.  But I'm worn out.  I've got over 25 gigabytes of images to edit and I don't know where to start.

My friend Rich Charpentier was my guide and we visited three different locations.  Friday afternoon it was the Paria ghost town, which was the location of many western movies.  Saturday we spent the day at Coyote  Buttes, south area, and Sunday we hiked four and half miles into Buckskin Gulch to the slot canyons.  It's not the four and a half in thats the problem, it's the four and a half back out.  So here are a couple of youtube videos to give you an idea of what it was like.  These were shot by Rich with a simple Ipod Touch.  He gave me permission to share them on our blog.



This morning we packed up and headed south to Cottonwood, Az.  We are staying at the Deadhorse Ranch State Park.  We have been reading about Jo and Fred volunteering here during the month of October, and although we missed meeting them by a week, we are looking forward to spending a week or so here.  On Wednesday we are going to take the Verde Canyon scenic train.  We will also be visiting Jerome, Sedona, and the surrounding area.  If any of you have any must see attractions let us know.

Until later.

I really like Deadhorse Ranch State Park. John and I use to go there periodically. Of course you can't miss Jerome and you have that on your list of things to do. That would be my most favorite thing to do in the area. Have fun and thanks for those film clips.
