Canyonero

This road trip has been a great one for outdoor places. Sure I've seen some cities (or at least little bits of them): San Antonio, New Orleans, Vegas, El Paso, etc. But the parks have been the real stand outs. In each of the 3 main parks we've visited, the best scenery in my opinion has been the canyons.

* Big Bend National park in southwest Texas: I would love to spend more time there. It's really got some great geography.

* Red Rocks near Las Vegas: a great scenic drive even if you don't get out of the car. If you hike around a little, it gets even better.

* Death Valley National Park: lots of desert, but some of the narrow canyons are pretty freaking spectacular too.

Red Rocks is amazing you can spend a week exploring the area and be amazed every day by a new find!

When we lived in MN, I hitchhiked to Big Bend and spent Xmas day on a trail. Margaret drove me to the freeway with you two boys and stayed til I got a ride, thinking that might be the last time youŽd see me.
