Wow! What a climb!
On first reading, I thought you climbed, as in hiked, from 4000 to 9000 feet in an hour, and I was not surprised since I know you guys are in the greatest of shape. Nevertheless, it did seem nearly impossible. On second reading, I guess you aren't quite Supermen. . .! The photos are spectacular, worthy of framing! It must have been eerie alone in a campground without anyone around. Being a city girl, that thought alone frightens me, without even mentioning snakes and bears. Keep writing! I love to read your blogs! Love, Linda

Haven't been able to get in touch with Warren Smith. He must be away. Are you still going to send a newsletter. If you give me some ideas I will write it up. "You must be the change you wish to see in the world" Gandhi

marvelous photos
great pics, Bob: We've been in the area and enjoyed it. Now, you two have to come to the Vermilion Cliffs, between 10/1 and 11/15, to hike Buckskin Gulch, the world's longest slot canyon -spooky and beautiful; and the Wave- like no place else on earth. we'll be there then, at the Paria Contact Station.. We can toast to W's good health (we don't want The Lizard to take our nation's reins! Emily and Bill

Wow, cool hike! Can you elaborate, and this will sound silly, on what grits are? I always thought they were potatoes, hashbrown type things, but a fella from Tennessee that I recently met has said that Grits are Grits, not potatoes, but won`telaborate. How would you describe grits? ivadoll (

What a place!
Las Vegas is the opposite of what we "outdoor people" are used to----but there are so many who love it. Who is crazy? We like to think it is the "others". After all, I think, the natural world has it all. But not everyone does!

Alaskan travels
I'm so glad to follow your travels through Alaska. We took an Alaskan cruise a few years back and loved the ports we visited. Your blog and photos take me back and give me a renewed inspiration to travel Alaska. Have a great time! Love, Linda

"The Love Boat"
Well, I watched the show, "The Love Boat," for years, and I never imagined it to be a raft on the Colorado River. I am so happy for the two of you and hope that you, soon, will be cruising into Southern Oregon. Happy travels throughout your lives together! ! !

Congradulations Maureen and Bob! -And a proposal story to tell at anniversaries. Somehow I suspected that two people who could be side by side this long might never really part! Hope to do some biking and kayaking with both of you, if you ever come back!

Beautiful Pictures
Kelly and Bob, Your pictures are spectacular and the story so interesting! Our trip on Westwater Canyon way up stream in Utah was a Mini-Grand Canyon trip of just 2 days. We "froze" because the weather turned cold and rainy. Otherwise our experiences were similar. Looking forward to your next blog! - Joan Roolf
