We took another great hike down the lower Cathedral Wash trail, which is actually in the Grand Canyon National Park.
It is a fairly gradual grade down the wash to the Colorado River. Much of it was easy walking but there was quite a bit of rock scrambling. We nearly turned around when we came to at least a 20 foot drop, but we saw another couple coming back up the wash and watched how they climbed up to where we were.
Yesterday Jim and I rode our bikes to the Navajo Bridge over the Colorado. The old bridge is a pedestrian bridge, so you can walk out over the river.
We did see a crowd of people at the far end of the bridge, and as we got closer realized they were bungee jumping. I’m sure it is quite a rush, but I could barely watch. Jim got some pretty good pictures of one of them.
Today we left Lee’s Ferry for a beautiful drive to Zion National Park. We got a really early start for us (before 8), and the sun was shining just right on the Vermillion Cliffs along the way.
We forgot what a climb it was to Jacob’s Lake, at almost 8000 feet, where you intersect the road to the north rim of the Grand Canyon. And there was lots of snow at that elevation, so the road was still closed for the winter. May be another month or more before it is open.
