Canyons and Arches

I’m continuing my “vacation while I can” tour of the US, blogging this morning from Cooperstown, NY.  All the photos of my trip around the Southwest are up at http://rkolker.com/gallery (go to the second page to find them).  The pictures don’t do the canyons justice, and my words certainly don’t.  Here’s a California Condor circling the Grand Canyon.

If you’ve never been to the Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion, plan to do so some time.

I was on my way to Arches National Park, reading a local newspaper when I discovered one of the arches had fallen overnight.  Apparently this is not unheard of.  When I got to the park, the film they showed had video of part of an arch coming off.  It shows even natural wonders made of stone are temporary.

10 days to A-100.
