This tree is very interesting: This may be my favorite picture of the 10 million I've already posted: After I purchased a colored glass wind chime for my mom we waved goobye to the historical place of interest. We shared out the remainder of our saved EOS mystery sandwich: It was pretty good, but I prefer the Holiday or the Hawaiian BBQ. Then we were driving for what seemed like forever. We did see some cool things like this green dirt: Then we started driving through mile after mile of these: and... It was pretty much never ending. I wonder how many people just pull over and grab a few. I was getting pretty irritated at driving, but the car rental agreement was under my name and we didn't want to pay more to put Brian on it. So I kept driving. And driving. We were on a small 2 lane road too, so I kept getting a car or 2 backed up behind me. I understand the mindset, I am from a small town too and would get irritated with people driving the speed limit on roads I knew like the back of my hand. But this road was pretty windy and I had never driven it before, so then I got to deal with people tail gating me. Not fun. We finally reached the entrance of the National Park as the sun began to set. Then we encountered what I think is called Devil's Canyon or Devil's Descent or something like that. If you've ever been there you know what I mean. We turned a corner in the road and there was just this huge descent in front of us. The road was extremely steep and windy. And of course I was driving so Brian couldn't get one decent picture of it. I was a bit irritated at this. I'd been driving almost all day with few breaks and it really was an amazing view and scene and we don't have one good picture of it and I can't find any online to borrow. Sigh. Anyway, it took about a half hour to get down to the bottom. Here are a couple pictures that do the scenery zero justice. We found the ranger's station, and of course, the rangers had just left about half an hour earlier. I had read about a few trails online that I wanted to do. There was a short trail to an oasis from the ranger's station, and looking back we should have just quickly hiked that while there was still daylight but we decided to go and find our campsite and get set up. Here is Brian setting the tent up in the dark. We tried to take pictures of the millions of stars with the gorillapod but I guess my camera just isn't good enough. They all turned out like this or worse. We cooked some food, I dragged all the stuffed animals and souvenirs out of the car cause I was bored, and then we tried to take some pictures as we listened to the older couple in the RV next to our spot very loudly discuss how 'this was their life now' and other deep philosophical discussions. We were pretty tired from the drive so we got everything cleaned up and went to sleep.
