Hurricane, UT, and Hayden's and PopPop's Hikes

July 24

Phil and Hayden were going to take the shuttle to hike the Narrows Trail (not all the way, though), but a flash flood warning for the Virgin River came up on my phone right before they were going to leave. We decided to go to Hurricane to Walmart and get groceries for Grand Canyon, since there will be no major grocery stores nearby. We got back, and ate our big meal since the clouds were keeping the camper nice and cool. About 1:00 Phil and Hayden took the shuttle into the park. I caught them on the cellphone while they were still in range, and told them I saw two huge red blotches indicating big storms that seemed to be tracking toward Zion National Park. Since Phil and Hayden would be hiking along the Virgin River, and the chance for a flash flood was there, they changed plans and went on two shorter hikes to the Weeping Wall and the River Walk. I was very glad to see them return safe and sound. They did not experience any problems, nor rain. When they got back, I went with Hayden to the pool until supper time.
Tomorrow it is off to Tusayan, AZ, for two only two nights to give us one day to see the Grand Canyon. We will have to cram a lot in that one day! I hope it will be enough. Our time is zipping by, and two weeks from today we will be back in Townsend. We have been on the road for eight weeks today. I hope Hayden has really enjoyed our adventure. He sure has seen a lot!!!!
