Day 18, Grand Staircase-Escalante

Before I start the blog today I wanted my Family and friends to know I found the prefect book for me to read:

Today headed directly for Kodachrome Basin. Amazing sights there include our hike to Shakespeare Arch:

    Love the book – be sure to share with your travel buddy. I wonder if the author’s name is real. Ben Goode just sounds too much like “been good”. Nice photos – thanks for including the flowers.
