Grand Gulch Mine

Hi All!  Sierra Dog here.

Tomorrow we're going to Sedona to pick up LL!
We're so excited to see her!

I told Breakfast Man that this is his last chance to slip some airplane pictures onto my blog before LL gets home.  Back in April, when we took family pictures in Sedona, we were on the way home from camping at Grand Gulch Mine, Az.  It's northwest of the Grand Canyon near the Utah and Nevada borders.

On the way, we got gas at Grand Canyon Caverns.
The mine and the airstrip are on the mesa, and this is the canyon we hiked.
 LL got a picture as we landed:
Our friend Dale was already there.
When Breakfast Man grows up, he wants to be just like Dale.
Dale lands at lots of neat places, and has a beautiful shiny airplane.

We checked out the old mine equipment.

Hiked down into the canyon,

and back up this great ridge back to the runway.
Good thing we have an airplane-
 
 this truck doesn't look like it'd make it all the way home.

  1. What beautiful pictures. We love the header. Sedona is such a beautiful place. You are making us nervous .... You better back up, you are to close to the edge. Have a fun day

  2. Hey Sierra! Where can we get one of the plane thingies? Our dad travels a lot and it would be cool if we had one so we could all go with him more! And that's a really cool place you're hiking!

  4. I continue to enjoy your pictures and adventures and am envious that my pups and I hardly go anywhere--This morning our senior boy Hamlet got into my van...I hated telling him that we weren't going anywhere! :-)
