Cody if you stop by on your way out west (I'm right on your route) I will cook for you a good old fashioned southern breakfast complete with fried eggs, bacon, sausage/milk gravy over biscuits, smothered potatoes, pancakes and grits with butter- just make sure you have cholesterol medication in hand when you arrive or you might not ever make it any farther!


Oh man I'm drooling now and tonight of all nights when the wife has parents evening and I have to cook for myself


Gravy .............. Check from last nights roast
Biscuits ...........Check in the biscuit tin (cookie jar)

This could be interesting,


I swear if I ever make it to the states I will check and see how many of my friends on ATS would like to meet. I know It's a big place and I have no idea how far apart you guys are but it would be so much fun.

If you are gonna do the Grand Canyon, take at least 1 day to check out Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. Truly spectacular scenery about 45 min south of Flagstaff...

Check out Arizona Highways online mag...


Thanks for the advice


I'll look it up later, it won't be this year as I have prior arrangements to take the wife to Rome, amongst other things.

But all travel advice is always welcome.

Yeah biscuits and gravy. My web mom Little D shared a nice picture of what it looks like

I personally like jelly. For some reason the gravy grosses me out...

Anyway. Rome sounds awesome! My dad took my step mom and little sis last spring. They had a blast and so many beautiful pictures they had.

Hope you have a nice evening.

The Grand Canyon is one of our favorite places to hike. Over the years we have hiked the entire length, usually 80 to 100 miles per trip.
I hope you don't mind if I share some photos from our hikes.
We hike from the rim down to the inner plateau.
There is a trail that runs along the inner plateau, Tonto trail.
We look for water sources along the way.
In this photo, the land formation just behind Mrs. tanda is called the Temple of Set.
From the Tonto trail there are a few trails that will lead down to the Colorado River.
One of the things we love about hiking here is the lethal nature of this terrain. It is very dangerous and claims around 5 lives per year. Really keeps you on point.Thanks for letting me share.

Gorgeous, is it true you can see the geological past in the strata (rock)?

You definitely can. I'm not educated in geology enough to identify the periods, but but as you descend, you pass through bands of colors that are so pervasive, it makes your skin appear to be changing colors. We have done the descent so many times, we mark our progress by what color our skin looks.
In this photo you can see Mrs. tanda relaxing along the high water mark near the river. You can easily make out the effect of water erosion on the granite.

WOW


How could I possibly mind a contribution like that to my humble thread ?

Awesome and a lot of effort to post so many beautiful photo's

I am as of now officially jealous,

Though I shouldn't be this is where I go when I need to chill out, I was born here and will have my ashes scattered or body unceremoniously dumped in accordingly.

This is at low tide



Still low tide with me me trying to look cool




Where to dump the body from




The climb they'll have to make
what can I say I have an evil side as well



This is traditionally known as Merlin's cave from the Arthurian tales




Thanks for the effort I'm even more inspired now
