Trip Reports: Desert Road Trip - October/November 2012

In late October and early November, we spent 3 weeks on a road trip through the deserts and canyons between California and Colorado.  Highlights included camping in Death Valley in California, a backpack trek into the Grand Canyon, hiking through a slot canyon in Page Arizona, visiting the cliff dwelling of Mesa Verde in Colorado, and more!

Here is a collection of my favorite photos from the trip.
