That looks great. I love that spot beneath the rocks. Thanks for sharing your trip.

Good stuff there. Love the desert. Keep that kid traveling. You are doing more good for him than you can imagine. Take LOTS of pictures and videos.

My daughter @ 16 has been to nearly every American state and Canadian province (which is very educational, by the way) and remembers quite a bit from when she was a toddler. My wife and I were talking recently about a trip we took when my daughter was VERY young and my daughter remembered things that happened with surprising detail. She thought she had dreamed it but still she remembered the trip.

In stark contrast, my wife is a special ed teacher in Detroit. She told me that most of her students have never seen a forest, never seen a wild animal, never seen a lake, in fact have never even seen a hill for cryin' out loud (Detroit is very flat). Most have never been 10 miles from home. To me that is devastating.

You two are great parents. Keep up the good work and keep gettin' out there.

outstanding
the best camping is dry camping
we are so lucky to have so many beautiful spots here on the west coast that allow dispersed camping.
with a few minor modifications to batteries and water supply it is so easy to be comfortable camping without hookups .
thanks for the trip report

Day 3

Wake up to another perfect desert sunrise.
[image]

Short morning hike to the rim.
[image]

Slow progress out of camp heading to the next destination.
[image]

[image]

[image]

Then a long climb up to a ponderosa forest before descending to the desert again.
[image]

Stopped off at the Trumble School house.
[image]

Here's what it originally looked like.
[image]

[image]

After lunch, we thought it would only be another hour to camp, turns out it was closer to three.
[image]

The road got steeper.
[image]

And then it got narrower with a nasty little ledge at the top to keep you on your toes.
[image]

Then it got really rocky, narrow, and slow. We almost turned around several times, but continued on because of these views.
[image]

The camper/truck paid the price with "Pinion Pin-striping" and some bumper dragging.
[image]

[image]

We finally got to camp, and it was totally worth it. Four hour drive from any city. We only saw a park ranger all day, and nobody back here. This place was absolutely unreal. The location will remain nameless, so others can stumble upon it like we did.

He will if you keep taking him . It will become part of his life and someday he will take you and change your diaper. [emoticon]

Another long day with slow travel. But first a short hike.
[image]

And some family pics.
[image]

And mandatory car time.
[image]

Bumpy and slow for over an hour. Not my cup of tea, but the views made up for it.
[image]

Then down the steep, twisty hill again.
[image]

Back through the Pinyon Pinstriper.
[image]

Now on to the Tamarisk Pinstriping machine.
[image]

Camp is creekside, with a refreshing dip.
[image]

[image]

Then some pre-bed zombie time.

Day 5 is commute home day with a scenic hike to keep sanity levels in check.

Reality of the paved world.
