Away from the madness, the Grand Canyon near Bright Angel Point.

@McTag,
Ah, the Luxor. One of the eerie experiences of driving to Vegas is that, at night, you can see the glow of the city in the distance long before you see the city itself. And the closer you get, the more you get the feeling that you can see a beam of light shooting upward... it's the Luxor, beckoning you onward.

@spendius,

Spendi, you misogynistic misanthropic misbegotten excuse for a creature, why are you hanging about here like a bad smell?
Your intention seems only to spoil.

There is a walled Chinese garden in Portland which is very nice.

Trees on fire

Tree not on fire, but big

@cicerone imposter,
McTag, Great pictures, love those of Zion the best. They kind of reminds me of Sedona. That second set on the Grand Canyon really shows itself off with those colored geological layers of rock. They don't call it the "Grand" Canyon for nothing! Wows, all around.

@McTag,
When I lived in Sacramento many lifetimes ago, we used to visit Yosemite National Park pretty frequently. Your pictures brings back those wonderful memories. Thank you.

@McTag,
When you were at Zion, did you get a chance to do that hike that involves wading through the river (I forget the name of the area)? I did it about a month ago and it was great fun.

We met this critter moseying along the trail.
Apologies to those who've seen him before. The bison need all the help they can get

Although we stayed in the park, we were at the Wawona Hotel, about 40 miles from the Canyon. Near the Sequoia grove. The hotel was interesting, dating from about 1880. Great breakfasts, great piano player too (not Mondays).
