    I'll try to remember to come back and post the link to Part 2 once I get it published (probably Sunday).
    Nice trails, Emily!

    I love the midwest. Of course, DH is from Ohio, and my g-parents lived in Cleveland when I was growing up. The people are just so nice and down-to-earth. Much of it feels very "Leave it to Beaver" to me (kinda old-timey), but for visiting, I like that. Real estate prices are so incredibly reasonable, the dogs are not running loose as in the southeast, and the cycling is generally very good.

    Here's part 2 of our Lake Wobegon Trail rides -- this time heading east from our campground:

    The "smoke" is dust left behind as a car sized boulder careened down from the top layer (Kaibab) into the canyon.

    Gorgeous photos, Sharon! I love the Grand Canyon.

    Seems like when we were there the mighty Colorado was nice and blue (or green). But that was May 1 (ten years ago), so probably a very different phenomenon than what is going on at this time of year.

    Hope you had a wonderful trip!

    Thanks Emily- I am amazed at how nice the photos from a camera can be.

    It was a great trip, good weather.

    Great pics! I need to go back and explore this more. I have only been there in the winter, which was awesome, but couldn't do much!
