Grand Canyon 2004

July 9

We’re in a pandemic.  We’re not going anywhere.  It’s Throwback Thursday.  For the first time since I bought it several months ago, I tried out a USB port required CD reader (since they are no longer contained in laptops) and this was the first one read.  BTW, Joey Chestnut recently broke his own record by eating 75 hot dogs in 10 minutes.  Well, I just ate one in the same period of time, but then mine came garnished with chips and a pickle.  Chestnut ingested 42,000 calories during his world-record feat, but then, like a snake, he won’t have to eat again for six months.  What’s the fun in that?

I don’t remember what camera I had in 2004.  This was also the era of transition in photography from film to digital.  Again, not sure what I had.  And in conclusion, this was not the first trip to the Grand Canyon for either of us – but it was the first such trip for us as couple of the month from the SW shores of beautiful Lake Darling.  A trip highlight was lunching at the park lodge.  A table of six behind us asked if we were the Oberts.  We turned and asked how did they know?  They said they got our credit card back from our concurrent bill paying.  Leading to further discussion, we learned they were from . . .  Fergus Falls.  Stuff happens . . .

Baseball, it is said, is only a game.  True.  And the Grand Canyon is only a hole in Arizona. Not all holes, or games, are created equal.  ~  George Will                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Up Next:  Depends on what I find on the CD reader . . .

  1. Tom and Ruth, One of the best things I have ever done was hiking the GC from rim to rim. I did it when I was 60. Stayed in Phantom Ranch over night. Temp was 115 degrees when we hiked out. Just two years ago we stayed a couple of nights at the North Rim. Enjoyed the pics. Uncle Tom
