The Rest of Monday, and Tuesday from Sunday, 4 January, 1998

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Everyone except Ace had a good time - she made it up the bluff and across the desert, but when we were far enough down Hidden Palm Canyon to see some palms in the distance, she dropped out and just waited on a rock until we came back. Then it was a job getting back up out of the canyon, and both the guide and his wife gave her their sticks to help get down from the bluff. Some prisoners had made the steps by laying timbers across the trail, but the drop varied from maybe 10 inches to two feet, so it wasn't all that easy to walk down. There was no hand rail, of course, and a nasty drop on the right. Before we were half way down all of the other visitors had disappeared across the valley, and in the end even the guide went ahead and waited for us in the parking lot. He had said that it was an easy hike and we would be back by 11:30, but it was almost one by the time we made it back. We left at nine.

After we made it home, Ace (the BW) spent the rest of the day and some of Tuesday recovering, but it was worth it. Tuesday morning we did laundry, then went to Costco to buy coffee and to ask the price of glasses for Ace. Annie spent a really long time in the pottery place and bought a few things. Later she went back and got one more cute flower pot.

PS - Annie is our oldest daughter - she was visiting us from her home in Yakima (actually, Union Gap.)

    It sounds like quite an excursion.

    I liked that after all that you could say it was worth it. Yay.

    Sounds like a nasty walk to me. But you did it
