    Hike the Canyon (Grand) and go a little further than the hamlet of Havasupai to the Supai falls! Turquoise colored water and cliffs! Always be aware of the weather in the area because many have lost their lives due to flash floods that can frequent this area, especially during the "Monsoons". All over AZ there are enormous Cliff dwellings that USED to be on the topo maps. Find someone that has lived here for many years (that has copies of these old maps) and you might be treated to a picture taking time of your life. Don't tell everybody!

    I spent a week camping in Yosemite National Park a few years ago. I didn't want to go home. Everything there is huge. The sky is so clear it seems like you can see forever. Like in Texas, when looking up at night you are amazed at how many stars there are up there. Caught my first rainbow trout in the Mercer river and even trying panning for gold, ( no luck ). Great time.

    Big Bend is my favorite, many night up till about 2 or 3 in the morning just looking at the stars there is so many that even without the moon you do not need a flashlight, it is so bright with the moon some of our group said it was to bright to go to sleep. And to top it off the west Texas territory is the best place in the US, the King Ranch offers week long stays and the chance to work on a ranch (after all it is the largest ranch in the US) Enchanted Rock State Park offers great hiking and rock climbing and repelling. Texas is truly the best place in the world!! (OK mabey I am just a little prjudice)

    You youngsters are so funny..What's wrong with a little Choir Practice?? Of course I dive Mexico, I camp and repel Red River Gorge, and I dirt Bike Ride near Somerset KY, Appalachian Trail in fact some of my buddies have ridden it in total!, and boat and ski on the Ohio River. But I have to admit Choir Practice has a special place in my heart!
