Rattlesnake Memories

I can't say I actually ran into any girls who looked even remotely like these
babes on my morning stroll down main street in Williams, Arizona. This town is
the railway station for the three daily trains which make the two hour trip to
the Grand Canyon.

Though we won't be boarding one of those trains today , it did bring back
memories of a previous Canyon trip.

My first hike of the Canyon was a spring trip in which I hiked
(solo!) down the South Rim to the Colorado River and then up the North Rim
.... ... . 5 days in the vast beauty of this remarkable piece of the
American West.

My favorite trailside sign:
"Beware - Rattlesnake Breeding Area"

I ran ... .

I've never been to the Grand Canyon but I can imagine how beautiful and peaceful it is (except for those rattlesnakes!!). Five days of solitude - WOW!

Solo in that area! That was brave. Once I was rock-climbing in Southern Illinois and got to the top of a cliff to find a nest of rattlesnakes waiting! You can imagine I scrambled on top of the cliff quickly and got far away from that nest! Hope you're having a lovely trip.
