We've visited Escalante and Bryce Canyon (top photo) in the last couple of days on our RV trip through many states from our home in Texas...
It was my first visit to Escalante State Park. We found a slot canyon to walk through on Burr Trail Road - at first I missed it and drove about 10 miles out of the way. Oops. The unexpected trees in the slot canyon and the orange-red rock was something I've always dreamed of seeing.

We visited the small Anasazi State Park Museum, too. We saw the remains of an 800 year old pueblo and I walked inside a small replica of a home, too.
We drove for a couple of hours up and down 45 mile long Hells Backbone Road and looked down into a another canyon. I'm so sleepy lately that somehow I kept falling asleep on that bumpy road. At least I wasn't driving.

Today I ran 5 miles with some hills along the Cannonville foothills. It was nice to run on the BLM dirt road and not worry about cars. I ran 45 miles this week. Time to taper for the Flagstaff to Grand Canyon Stagecoach Line 55K trail race coming up on September 26 in Arizona! Now I need to narrow down how I'll fuel, carry water (only 2 aid stations in 34 miles) and if I'll carbohydrate load. Part of the fun is the planning.
