When you are afraid of heights…..

Monday, September 24, 2012

The Grand Canyon may not be the best place to go on vacation….but it was on my Bucket List….and I’m glad I went. We stayed in some rustic accomodations..... LOL!!!

I saw some of my cousins super-glued to the side of a cliff…… (how on earth do they DO that!!)

And my trusty mule, Wickiup kept me from toppling over the edge of the rim…..He is a little afraid of heights and kept his eyes closed the whole time so he wouldn’t be nervous (this is what the wrangler told me, I don’t know because I didn’t look either…..) LOL!!!! emoticon

But it is a beautiful part of the country....if if it made me nervous to look over the edge...

    I visited the Grand Canyon a few years back. I would have liked to do more like hike or ride a burro, but physically I was not up to it--thanks extra pounds! It looks like you had the trip of a lifetime.

    What great pictures. I took a mule ride on Molokai. Those mules can be stuborrn.

What a fun vacation!

I am glad you got to see the Grand canyon. I have never seen it.

    I really appreciate your sense of humor.
Glad you had a nice vacation but I missed you
and I'm really glad you are back. :)
Now I understand why you couldn't
log into Sparks. They should hook those
mules up with Wi-Fi saddles :)

    Those pictures are gorgeous. I'm glad you had the courage to go even though you are afraid of heights. I am afraid of heights too so I know it wasn't easy. Love your profile pic, btw. It's cute. :)

    You are so brave, REALLY, to take that mule along the edge. Your cousins are quite athletic!
What a wonderful trip. So glad you could cross it off your bucket list.

    Looks like a "fun" time! I'm not sure I could ride one of those creatures on a trail like that-Way to go! emoticon

    Soo beautiful - when I was over there I was at a dude ranch in Utah and saw some of the Rocky mountains, not the Grand Canyon but close enough for a swede... amazing!

    The Grand Canyon is really gorgeous, isn't it?!!! My family went there when I was about 9 years old (which is really too young to fully appreciate it, I think), and I haven't been back since. We never took the mule ride to the bottom of the canyon, so I don't know what that's like. It's something I wanted to do back then, but I wouldn't dare do it now---I'd be too scared! emoticon LOL You are sooooo brave to tackle your bucket list, even when the things on your list are scary!

So what's next on your bucket list?

    Thanks for the preview. I've never been either! I'm putting it on my bucket list.
