Smack in the middle of winter, we found ourselves with a little extra time and nothing planned to fill the days. That, in addition to the fact that it was going to be cold and snowy in nearly all of Washington state, signaled to us that an escape down south would be a doubly worthwhile endeavor. The question was: where should we go? We'd been to both Death Valley (Nadeau Trail, Loose Ends), the Mojave Preserve (Short Days), and Owens Valley (Tragedies, Right Back to Owens Valley) a couple times in the last couple months - and while another trip to those would have been delightful, we decided to change things up just a little bit. We'd still visit the same desert - the Mojave is a big place - but this time we'd head to its very eastern edge - right around the intersection of Nevada, Utah, and Arizona.
There, we'd find ourselves searching for Pahranagat Man (and a plethora of other petroglyphs and pictographs), wandering through a Bowl of Fire, exploring a Snow Canyon (appropriately, as snow fell from the sky), and venturing to the very edge of the Grand Canyon.
It was, to be sure, a trip we'll remember for a long time to come!
