We booked this room in the morning and guaranteed the room with a credit. We were told we would get a ground floor room because we had bikes, but when we arrive, no ground floors were available. We would have went elsewhere, but most of the hotels were full. Would not recommend this hotel. A/C does not work very well and kitchenette in room has no utencils or plates.

This was the most difficult trek of the tour, mostly because the sun emerged from behind the clouds and was beating down on us. Not only that, but this trek was entirely uphill, for 2 miles and there was no marked trail. We had to follow the cairns, which ...
... with them too. We bought the CD of all the photos for $45! 1 was $15, 2 were $25 and we were just swayed by them all. Of course to this you have to add tax :-( We'll have to add these photos later as we can't access a CD on the Netbook as well as the photos I took on the waterproof camera as it has a mini SD card.
As we paddled through the last rapid Greg decided to keep his video camera out & record it all. It was a great result, even ending ...
... Mark first noticed the bats hanging from the telephone lines. They were swooping all over, eating insects, which was probably why it was so pleasant out on the patio. We sure could have used them in Canyonlands, as every time we got out of the car we were swarmed by these tiny gnats. The heat wasn’t bad, but the bugs sure were.
After dinner, it was time to do the final loads of laundry and pack up.
Tomorrow: Arches and ...
