The East End

The Unkar Delta, we stood there 18 years ago.
We woke up to clouds and a bit of rain here and there, so we jumped in Stinky Jeep and drove out in the direction of Desert View. On the way, we stopped at Grandview Point, Buggein, Moran Point, Lipan Point and then turned back. On the out drive Linda spotted an elk and took some great photos. Then on the way back we spotted a couple elk feeding along the road and I got some shots. We are turning into a two camera family on this trip

Our final stop of the day took us to the Market Plaza where we bought some chips and filled our water bottles.  A few steps away we caught a shuttle and went to the Visitor Center to purchase some Rim to Rim decals for our friend Emily Compton. She and a friend ran Rim to Rim to Rim a few weeks ago but for some reason didn’t stop to buy Rim to Rim decals. The run took them about twelve hours and I think when you are half way finished after running Rim to Rim, you probably don’t feel like jogging over to the visitors center and stand in line for a decal.

Back at the camper we made potato cheese soup and biscuits, ate our fill and then drifted off to sleep.
