Spring Break 2011

For Spring Break we had a lot of things planned,
#1 Camp in the desert
#2 See Natural Bridges National Monument
#3 See Hovenweep
#4 See Mesa Verde
#5 Hike through a canyon (can't remember the name) near Cedar Mesa
#6 Find a really cool ruin that Andy won't let me name (it's secret)
#7 See the Aztec Ruins in New Mexico
#8 See 4 Corners Monument
#9 Hike to Delicate Arch
#10 Find an arrowhead, full anasazi pot, and spanish gold.

Our friend tagged along and asked us if we were planning on getting all of these done in a week, or a month.
A week of course...

Well, out of our list of 10, we completed about 4.

We camped in the desert, saw natural bridges,

SAW MESA VERDE! It's been on our list for a while now.

Found a secret ruin, but not the one we were looking for.

Hiked to Delicate Arch, Double Arch and the North and South Windows.

And we found some pieces of pottery. No Gold, No Arrowheads. Of course we left the pottery there, I don't want to go to jail for looting an archaelogical site!

Hopefully we'll be back soon to check the rest off our list.


  1. I LOVE that new header picture!!! Man, we need a truck so we can haul our brood and all the gear to come down and do that. It's on my 'bucket' list before we have another sometime in the next two or three years??? LOL!

  2. I'm glad you didn't want to go to jail for looting! Ha ha! It looks like Ty had fun!
