Said some of the hike is straight up and looks like you stood up it felt as though you could fall off.

The photos of the flowers are beautiful, they even look like they have a misty look to them. More, More, More....

Happy Trails,

Wow, that's some climb. Good luck with 7 miles up. If you can do that, you can hike rim-to-tim at the canyon. Look forward to the pics.

Hollyhocks, thistles and grasshoppers. What a varied and beautiful assortment of photos!

Might need a video camera for that hike. Just turn it on and save all your energy for breathing.

Good luck! Perhaps they were just out of shape and exaggerating the difficulty.

Beautiful flowers-I can smell them in my living room right now-or is that my new deodorant? Anyway-beautiful flowers. That anonymous number guy left a comment on mine too.Is that what they call spam? It gives a bad name to the real thing-and that's saying something.
