I got back to Mississippi early Sunday morning.
Took my folks out to the island today. What a nice day, it would have been perfect if it was a little less breezy. A good time was had by all.
Spent the day in Louisiana with the folks. Visited Chalmette Battlefield, took a boat tour of Bayou Sauvage, and visited Fort Pike. Stopped in Bay Saint Louis for ice cream on the way back.
A friend and I went to a Mardi Gras parade in Biloxi last night. The cops seemed a little frazzled but the crowd wasn’t too nuts.
My friend Lisa and her boyfriend Jimmy stayed here a couple of nights. They live in Alaska.
I left Many Farms really early this morning to get to Navajo National Monument for a four-hour hike to the Batatakin ruins.
I’m staying in a high school dormitory tonight that used to be a boarding school.
This morning I visited Monument Valley, and am in Gallup for the night.
I made it out of Elephant Canyon without too much excitement.
Here I am in Elephant Canyon, camping in the backcountry by myself for the first time ever. It is starting to snow on my tent!
After departing Arches this morning, and a nice hot breakfast in town, I drove out to the Island in the Sky at Canyonlands National Park.
The Devil’s Garden at Arches National Park. That’s where I hiked and that’s where I’m camping. It is frigging freezing here, probably about 15 degrees F later tonight.
After leaving Durango this morning, I visited Hovenweep National Monument and Bluff, Utah.
Yesterday afternoon I visited the very beautiful Mesa Verde National Park.
