After our long day hike, we cooked a nice healthy dinner in the gusting wind.
More silliness from Kurt....
And ran into more wildlife right near the showers. This lovely elk couple could not get enough of the oak trees.
Everyone stopped to gawk and take pictures, present company included.
This little guy went straight to the edge. I thought he was going to pull a lemming and jump off!
It was too bloody cold to sit outside so we had a few pints at the El Tovar pub. By this time, I have discovered my bed bug bites and I am scratching from head to toe (courtesy of the El Rancho Motel in Williams, Arizona).
The next morning, we discovered our ice covered water pail and made the decision to head southward to Sedona.
Our last canyon shots taken around Mather Point on a crisp, clear day. Stunning.
