Going a-jeeping

As part of our orientation for the park job, our boss is taking us on the White Rim. This is a layer of erosion-resistant rock 1000 feet below the mesa top, but still 1000 feet above the Colorado River. We’ll be gone 3 days in a Jeep Cherokee with five (5) people in a hot, buggy, bumpy adventure. I think the whole idea is that we will be able to tell visitors with 4WD vehicles what they’re in for when they ask questions of us at the desk. Should be a wonderful adventure, unlike any I’ve done before; I’ll check in with you Wednesday, hopefully with lots of stunning photos.
