Hiking trip

The Mogollon Rim is a major "fault line" (that's probably not the right term for it) running through Northern Arizona, with one side a good thousand feet higher than the other. There is a trail that runs along the top edge of the rim, that is as breathtaking as it is scary. The following pictures are all from that trip. For pictures from a trip years ago, click here.

 The rim's edge is where the path curves at the back of the picture. You will notice there are no pictures that I took of it up close - I had my hands full with a death grip on the stroller, lest a strong gust of wind took it over the edge and a thousand feet down.




John was thrilled to run into a team of "Hot Shots," and asked to have his picture taken with one of them. He has always been interested in fire fighting, especially the Hot Shots, and has read every book from the library on the subject.

 Miriam just passed out on this rock, being exhausted from having hiked all day. We spent most of the day hiking on the rim top, not along the edge, which we just briefly visited because it was too unnerving for me with all the kids.
