Mr. Squirrel gives tours at the Grand Canyon...


A bitch made a friend at the Grand Canyon...Mr. Squirrel (he liked to pose)!

He sat beside me for a spell and then tried to get me closer to the edge for a better view. But we'd only just met - for all I know he could be beyond tired of humans and trying to get a bitch to tumble over. So, I took a pass on a closer look.

But he was a nice ledge-based companion for a wee moment...

Consider walking down to Phantom Ranch (10 miles, more or less, by way of the Bright Angel Trail, with water at the 1.5, 3, and 4.5 mile intervals), but only in mid-to-late April, early May, or mid-September to mid-October. It’s a 4,400 foot change in altitude, with an increase of about 20 degrees Fahrenheit in temperature as you descend. I have done it twice (at ages 57 and 59), and it’s well worth the considerable effort. You will get an entirely different feeling about the place, and your place within it. Read up ahead of time, because you can get hurt out there. The times I mention avoid the heat of the summer and the unpredictable weather of the winter.
