Title: The Veranda

June 3 - 4

My son and I had a short overnight trip to the Veranda. It was a Monday so I hoped/assumed that no one would be there. After an easy hike we get there and find a solo backpacker already set up :( But he had a hammock so he was back in the trees and we went further out the ridge for views :) I talked to him for a bit and then my son and I relaxed and enjoyed the view.

Actually I enjoyed the view and he used my InReach to text hello to Mom :)

Nice colors after sunset

He went to bed and I enjoyed the view, but the clouds were setting in

Woke up and had a small fire in an existing fire ring

Then we took the "long" way back to the car so he could see Grays Arch

Then Miguels and home, a great 24ish hours in the gorge with my son.
