But Zoo pussed out. (snicker). Just kidding - i urged him to not get us stuck in the snow on a road where nobody drove and we had no cell reception. Bad idea. But he gave it the old road tripper try! Maybe he was just jealous that I was driving when we were on the original greatest road on Earth... After crossing into New Mexico, we saw another off-road loop opportunity and wanted to get off the highway.
So after extricating ourselves in reverse, we stopped above the canyon for a photo opp and beef jerky. When I find the B/W scans, I'll post those. They were awesome.
