Happy Halloween!! Just as we explored a different part of the Saguaro NP this time, so we checked out a different part of Zion this time – the East side, along the top of the canyon instead of the bottom. Later we also walked the Riverside Trail, one of my favorite memories in this park.

We drove through the 1 mile tunnel that included “air vents” as John put it at various spots along the way – from inside the tunnel they were nice breaks of air (from car exhaust) as well as sunlight.

We rested the next day, noting that we’re headed for 3 long travel days and will be heading into predicted snow. We have lots to do when we get home and don’t really have any travel/fun plans until March, so it’s unlikely I’ll be posting any blogs until then.
Spokane is due to have a low of 25 degrees the first day we are there – Brrr… it will be interesting how we “survive” winter at home!!!
