The trip is from Lewis & Clark Monument, Illinois, to Kickapoo State Park, Illinois, by way of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona

Dead Horse Point State Park, Utah

That morning we had to work our way through herds of cattle on the way to Dead Horse Point SP. We saw the visitor center then I hiked the West Rim Trail from there to the Colorado River overlook.

We then drove to the Dead Horse Point overlook. It started raining, so we parked the motor home and had lunch, then a short nap. By the time we woke up the rain had stopped. It is so convenient traveling in a motor home, especially such a small one you can take nearly anywhere. We walked to the overlook.

And hiked along the rim. Notice all the puddles from the just-ended rain.

Notice the trail marker. They are all over the trails, makes it hard to get lost.

The view was spectacular.

By the time we got back to Horsethief I wasn’t ready to quit, so I hiked on a trail from the campground that led far into the trees below our site. This is the view of the trees from our site.

After cloudy skies the two previous stormy nights, this night it was clear and, although still cold, a great night for bundling up in a blanket and laying out gazing at the stars.
