We stayed in Ten X campground just outside the South Entrance of the Grand Canyon and the next morning had to go back through the Grand Canyon to exit the East Entrance in order to head North towards Utah and Arches National Park in Moab, UT. We got to the park as the sun was setting so we had to make quick decisions on which part we wanted to see most and how quickly we’d be able to get there. I think we chose well enough by visiting the Windows. It was really pretty with the setting sun and even though we didn’t get to see the iconic arches, I was happy with the sights we did see while we still had light. As we were walking back down the trail to the car and it was past twilight, just barely able to see, I walked right past yet another snake curled up under one of the sage bushes. I saw it out of the bottom corner of my eye as I was stepping past and of course I started running and screaming right away per usual. It was too dark to see what kind it was and Ben was behind me and couldn’t get past, so with the help of the iPhone video light we were able to light the way and wait for the snake to slither away for him to get by. Scary stuff.
We camped somewhere called Ken’s Lake Campground and the next morning I took a quick dip 🙂
