North Carolina has one of the most assemblages of waterfalls in the US. This week we hiked into the Stone Mountain park near Trap Hill to visit the Widows Creek Waterfall.

Glen Canyon Utah

We are on day four traveling around Arizona and Utah. Yesterday we were finding pot on our hike in Sedona, today we are on a boat motoring up Lake Powell making our way through Glen Canyon to reach the tallest natural bridge in the world, RAINBOW BRIDGE.

The boat comes close enough to the canyon wall you can touch it.GlenCanyon-9

Once the boat docks it’s a short hike to the monument. 234 feet (71 m) tall Rainbow Bridge was not known to the outside world until 1909.
