 I did more back stitching on In the Garden.  Not too much more to go.  This will probably be my only finish for 2013.
 I spent 10 days in Arizona with my Sister.  We went to the Painted Deseret/Petrified Forest National Park
 And then spent 5 days hiking/camping in the Grand Canyon.
 The canyon at sunrise.  We were on the trail by 4:30 am in the dark and got to watch the sun come up and the different colors appear.
 More sunrise in the canyon.

 This is in a branch of the Grand Canyon that was on Indian Reservation Land - not part of the National Park.  We went with an outfitter and guide who packed in the tents/food and spent 3 days hiking and camping.
 This part of the canyon had waterfalls and looked almost tropical.  We were able to go swimming at this one.

 Sedona.  Our last stop before flying back home.
Castle Rock in Sedona.  It was a great trip.  We hiked 50 miles all told.  It was 104 down in the canyon.  Met alot of nice people from all over the world.  It was hard to come back to work.

Your stitching in coming along beautifully Kathy. I always find the back stitching is the tedious bit but it’s well worth the effort when you start to see the piece come to life, isn’t it.
Glad you had a great trip, I’m very envious, but I’m not sure I could have walked that far.
I’ve been the Grand canyon twice but only to the rim. I still can’t get over my feelings when I saw it for the first time……….nature is just so breathtakingly beautiful at times!
Happy Stitching!
