- The "other" viewSo -- with national parks and monuments closed due to the government shut-down today (stupid Congress), we found ourselves in southeast Utah, surrounded by such enticing vistas as Canyonlands National Park, Natural Bridge National Monument, and several ot Posted by Joyful Feet in On the Road Fall 2013 | Oct 3, 2013
- an autumn day for 14ersEarly this morning (well, on Tuesday) Lacey and I headed out to the Argentine Pass Trailhead to take another stab at summiting the two peaks that I have stared at across Lake Dillon for the past year: Grey's and Torrey's. Posted by stlefferts in dusty roads | Oct 3, 2013
- But why did they leave?Mesa Verde National Park seems to produce as many questions as answers, as many wonderments as fatigue.
Located in southwest Colorado, Mesa Verde is desert, canyons and yawning irrigated valleys. The real draw to the park are the pueblo Indian ruins, Posted by Joyful Feet in On the Road Fall 2013 | Oct 3, 2013

- A Grand Day OutWe were waiting at the appointed spot well before the tour van arrived to take us to the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. So early in fact, that another tour driver asked if we were waiting for him. Coincidentally, when Posted by AndiNZ in USA, USA! | Oct 2, 2013

- Days 33-34This was my third trip to Yosemite and by this stage you can probably tell that I was quite attached to the place. I was so excited to be able to show Marie and Ben all of the amazing places Posted by rmcneill1 in Rob's First Sabbatical | Oct 2, 2013
- Days 26-32The few days before Ben and Marie got here were long, hot and boring. Erin had gone back to NZ for her PhD graduation ceremony so I had nobody to do anything with. The weather has stayed hot despite everyone Posted by rmcneill1 in Rob's First Sabbatical | Oct 2, 2013

- Shenandoah-shut down and shut out ;(Well, we made the long trek (95 miles) to Front Royal and decided to stay for three days. That was our smart decision. Our not-so-smart decision was not to go into the National Park the day we arrived. Since then, Posted by jcorilio in Here we go again! 2013 | Oct 2, 2013
- A Taste of the Desert Day 2Wake up late at 9AM (which feels like 11AM for us, we lost 2 hours). We took advantage of the free breakfast at Care Oscars Bed & Breakfast then drove our little putt-putt (which is what we named our car) Posted by Yonderlust in Yonderlust | Oct 2, 2013

- Day 11 Blanding to Monticello via Mesa Verde National ParkInstead of Monument Valley Garth decided that we should make the treck into Colorado and visit the Mesa Verde National Park.

- A Taste of the Desert Day 1The day felt like it went on forever, and it nearly did, as it began at 6:30AM and didn't end until 3:00AM. We made a lot of ground, touching down in four states in one 24 hour period. We hopped Posted by Yonderlust in Yonderlust | Oct 1, 2013
