This week’s E-Staycation will take you to the South Kaibab Trail, Grand Canyon

Hi Everyone,

This week’s E-Staycation will take you to the South Kaibab Trail, Grand Canyon.

 

A while back, my wife, Linda-Ann and I took a hike into the Grand Canyon. It was my first time, and my wife’s second time, going below the rim. Linda-Ann hiked 6 miles (9.7 km) down the Bright Angel Trail 30 years ago. Over the years, we have walked the entire thirteen miles (21 km) of the Rim Trail, and some sections we have covered several times. But going down into the Canyon is an entirely different experience.

This was a great hike that I recommend to anyone who enjoys hiking and grand vistas.

E-Staycation – Kachina Trail

Hi Everyone,

This week’s E-Staycation will take you to the Kachina Trail, Arizona.

If you’re looking for a great hike, you need to try the Kachina Trail near Snowbowl in Flagstaff. It winds along the base of the peaks, takes you through thick forests and to open meadows. And if you go in the Fall, the Aspens are amazing.

The Chick Magnet

Hi Everyone,

I know it can be hard to find a date in these trying times, so I made a video to help you out with this problem.

As for my budget, I found a quarter in the parking lot the other day. That fully funded this project.

So without further ado, check out my video, “The Chick Magnet” and have a good laugh.

Have Fun,
Jeff

E-Staycation – Lenox Crater Hike

Hi Everyone,

This week’s E-Staycation will take you to Lenox Crater Hike, Arizona.

Lenox Crater is at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument. It’s a cinder cone near Flagstaff, and part of the San Francisco Volcanic Field.

This approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) trail is pretty steep going up to the summit, and combined with the altitude of about 7,000 feet (2,134 m), can be taxing. There is no crater to walk into, as it’s been filled in over the years, but it really is a great experience.

E-Staycation – Walnut Canyon National Monument

This week’s E-Staycation will take you to Walnut Canyon National Monument, Arizona.

Walnut Canyon is a wide canyon of rock, petrified sand dunes and pine forest with a peninsula of rock sticking out into the canyon for a short distance. The sides of the canyon and peninsula are dotted with Native American rock dwellings.

We’ve visited several times, in all kinds of weather. I remember being there one time when it started raining heavily. We found shelter in one of the old dwellings, and at that moment we shared an experience with all the people who ever lived there. A shared experience going back over 1,000 years. It was amazing and humbling.

E-Staycation – The Arboretum at Flagstaff

Hi Everyone,

This week’s E-Staycation will take you to The Arboretum at Flagstaff, Arizona.

Butterfly on flower at the arboretum in Flagstaff

The arboretum is a very relaxing place to visit. It’s nestled in the forest and has about 2,500 species of plants, a small pond, a greenhouse and lots of easy trails. There are several picnic tables for a relaxing lunch too. You will also find a nice little gift shop and museum.

You could easily spend several hours here walking, relaxing and taking photographs.

Depending on the time of year, you will see flowers, butterflies, leaves changing color, animals and more.
