The trail to Siparu Bridge in Natural Bridges National Monument was an epic adventure down wooden ladders made out of tree branches, rock stairs, switchbacks and short steep sections of slickrock which gave way to a steep drop. I loved being able to explore right underneath such an amazing formation that this photo doesn't do its size justice. The size of the sections that had crumbled away from parts of the bridge made me glad we weren't under it when if fell away. .

On the last night of our hike through the Grand Canyon we stayed at the Indian Garden campground. The night was beautifully clear and the Milky Way was crisp in the sky. I loved sitting there with my camera and looking up into the night sky and gazing at the bright light in front of me which was our destination in the morning after the big slog to get out of the canyon. What a world we live in.

If I'm being honest, the Grand Canyon rim to rim hike has never been on my bucket list but man am I so glad that I did it. My sister and I took our time and spent three nights in the canyon at different campsites and I truly recommend doing it and trying to do the side trails to the waterfalls and out to Plateau Point, where this photo was taken. Kristel and I sat here watching the canyon slowly come to life as the light changed with the setting sun. We morbidly decided to read Over The Edge: Death in Grand Canyon. The whole hike was such a peaceful experience, as long as you leave early before the sun gets up too high and completely zaps you like many of the people that we stopped to check on. Be careful out there in the Canyon, don't underestimate her.

My sister, Kristel and I decided to pack a kayak for a few days and head out onto Lake Powell to explore some of the lesser travelled canyons in the area. We paddled over the Utah/Arizona border many times on our exploration of canyons such a Labyrinth Canyon and we were lucky enough to walk barefoot through these canyons which we had totally to ourselves. We slept on the lakes edge wherever we decided to pull up. We had visits from bunnies, coyote and mice who ate through our tent while we were sleeping in search of crumbs from our trail mix. Such a magical once in a lifetime experience I will remember forever. .
