Oh yeah, but it's a good exhaustion
Our 9 day trip in '06 covered White Sands, Gila cliff dwellings, Canyon de Chelly, Arches Natl park, Monument Valley, and Chacao canyon and a few other minor spots along the way. This past Feb. we took another 9 days and caught Montezuma Castle Natl Monument, Sedona, Sunset crater, Marble Canyon, Coral Pink, Zion, Bryce, Escalante, Capitol Reef, and a short stop on the way back at Grand Canyon. A few other spots along the way also. Several of the trails were closed due to snow/ice at Zion but they didn't tell you until you had already hiked back there
. It seemed the weather didn't cooperate much this year, so we didn't seem to get as many shots in. Oh well, let's see where we end up in '08 as it hasn't been planned yet. Here's one from Capitol Reef if I remember correctly.
