The Executive staff of Carpe Diem Experience, LLC just returned from an off-site working meeting with our German office. We discussed Half Dome, Yosemite and the meaning of life while hiking in the Valley of Fire, Snake Gulch in the Kanabe Creek Wilderness and White Pocket – all in the Northern Arizona / Southern Utah areas. Some sites required the services of Paria Outpost & Outfitters. Their 4×4 Suburban truck allowed us to navigate the sand pit roads of the plateau.
Besides the pure business discussions and a needed R&R, a secondary purpose was to discover petroglyphs, pictographs, hoodoos, arches, and signs of the ancient natives who inhabited the area as far back as 800 BC. Enjoy these photos and plan a trip to the Great Southwest. You can easily visit the north rim of the Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion as well. If you know of any rock art at Yosemite, let me know.
Here’s a cute video story about 2 retired folks who have volunteered at Yosemite for 10 years. They live in an RV and have never owned a home. Credit to Amy Leinbach Marquis, Associate Editor of National Parks Magazine.
Happy EARTH DAY – Hug a tree.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain. I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end. I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend, but I always thought that I’d see you again.” – James Taylor
