So the trick to blogging at the GC is to do it late at night. During the day, none of my pictures would upload, probably too many people on the crappy Edge Network. Problem…solution!
Last night it got COLD! You always hear stories about the desert being swelting during the day and freezing at night. It’s no lie. It gets to 80 at 6am!
And the coyotes! Holy shit! All night it was like The Blair Witch Project only louder and closer. The screaming was coming from all around the camp. These animals sound tortured.
My coworker Tonja was totally correct when she said to get an air mattress thingy for my sleeping bag. She also mentioned a LED Headlamp, which I didn’t get. After 2 days holding a flashlight in my teeth I’m ready for the headlamp!
I’m starting to think that Americans don’t like National Parks. So far I’ve seen French, German, Australian, and Muslims. The rest of the world appreciates America and all we want to do is keep them out. Thanks Arizona.
