Have a great time enjoying the Grand Canyon. The view is truly spectacular and breath-taking . . . hereís a few shots from the helicopter ride several of us were on earlier today:
Now to prepare to enjoy some campfire stew and work in some hiking. Keep moving and posting, my friends!

I so love showing off our beautiful great lake to visiting friends. This was about two weeks ago . . . hence, the warm jackets of my compadres visiting from Nepal. While traveling up the Northshore scenic drive, I love stopping at Brighton Beach to enjoy our first view of this gorgeous lake.
Then itís time to get the walking sticks out so we can walk to the lake and maneuver the rocks with a little better balance.
Thereís a little bit of flora by the Slit Rock river along with our entire family.
Then thereís the Split Rock Lighthouse that showcases why we visited this state park. And yes, I really am a tree hugger. (smile, smile)
By the time we came back, the rice had cooked and eggplant, moong dal, and cumin dal curries were heated, as was the grilled chicken. I love getting out my red and white picnic basket and matching table cloth.
Then itís off to Gooseberry Falls, another Minnesota State Park.
A stop to see Tugboat Edna is in order. This is a working ore dock in Two Harbors, where shipments of taconite (iron ore pellets) are transported.
What great views! What a day! After 24 years of marriage, my guy and I expect to walk down to the lake to enjoy a nice dinner.
May you also enjoy and celebrate the beauty around you.
