Veggie Voyagers

Couple travelled 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces between 7/07 and 5/08 running their 1987 Ford truck on straight veggie oil. The blog continues with a focus on the natural world and energy politics from a personal perspective

Page to North Rim

 This is the Colorado River below the Glen Canyon Dam at Navajo Bridge. Notice the strange combination of green and sediment in the water... From here we went down to Lee's Ferry where  those who float the Grand Canyon put in. (Closest I'll ever get to the experience... ) After that we took out from Marble Canyon across a vast plateau and uphill to the Kaibab forest... Ponderosa pine and high country critters... and lots of hunters. Guess this guy was smart to stay inside the protection of Grand Canyon National Park.
 The most interesting thing I saw was this Halloween looking little Kaibab squirrel with his big ear tufts and glorious tail.
 The views from Bright Angel Point were disappointingly hazy with pollution hitting up on the chilly morning air looking into the sun plus there were controlled burns adding their soot to the mix.
 Still, over by the campground, away from the tourists with just a few hikers still tenting there, I was able to find the peace and beauty of this most Grand Canyon.
