In mid-April 1999 I spent
10 days exploring desert canyons of northeast Arizona and southeast Utah, looking
for Anasazi ruins. The time of year was ideal, with evening temperatures no
lower than 26F, daytime temperatures ranging from 60 to 80. Every day was sunny
but the last as I drove back to Colorado Springs. The sun, the rock, the flora,
and the presence of the "ancient ones" made for a mystical experience. I look
forward to my return.
returned in 2000, this time with my daughter
Natalie, to explore Fish, Owl, and Road Canyons.
