The setting sun also intensified the red in the rocks. ac-kc-sunset2.jpg (13061 bytes)
Some of us enjoyed the roaring fire with  tins of VB  or a stubby of Strongbow while our dinner cooked. ac-camp2.jpg (29654 bytes)

Mark the Sadistic Tour Guide told us we could sleep in to 5:20 am. Good thing he gave us the extra hour, we were discussing tying him to his cot so we could sleep later.

Actually, Mark was a good guide: very knowlegable about the region, local culture, and useful plants.

Mark also bought some champagne so we could all toast the honeymooners, Chris and Sunny from Boston.
