The two RV Gypsies drove a different part of the Grand Staircase-Escalante, a National Monument - near Boulder, Utah.

The two RV Gypsies stopped their truck at a pull-out because Karen liked the stripes in the mountain and wanted a photograph.

Then, looking left, Lee spotted a path and decided to see what other great scenery could be seen there. It looked like a short, easy path with just a slight incline downward.

A minute later, Lee looked up and was amazed at how tall the mountain cliff was.

A few steps around the tree (shown in the above photo) and the two RV Gypsies just had to take close-up photos of the mountain.

Such unbelievable beauty just a short distance from the side of the road, yet the two RV Gypsies almost drove by this area without seeing it.

The two RV Gypsies enjoyed taking close-up photos of the mountain and all its crevices, so they were surprised once again, when they turned around and saw that this was actually a slot canyon. To realize how tall these cliffs are, notice how tiny the people in the below photo appear to be.

Because the ground was so smooth and level, Karen decided to go further into the slot canyon, which didn't look very deep.

Just a short walk between the trees (shown in the photos above), and the two RV Gypsies were at the end of the slot canyon, looking up and being amazed at how tall the slot cave is.

Time to drive on and see more of the Grand Staircase-Escalante.

At the next pull-off, Lee took the below photo. Then Lee heard Karen telling him to come and be amazed at the scenery on the other side of the road.

awesomeThe two RV Gypsies were in awe of the scenery. The last (red) photo on this page shows the road leading down into the valley.
