What? You don't practice KICKBALL every day? I'm so disappointed...

Oh... and hi!

I'm thinking you meant visited BY YOURSELF because you left off all of the places you have been with us, (pout) great post

howlingman said...

Havasupai Indian reservation, eh? That is fantastic.

That's on my short list of places I'd very much like to go, because as it turns out, there's a waterfall there named...Mooney Falls.

And it was named so Back to the Future III-style, after the person who fell in. That person's name was Dan Mooney, a prospector from the 19th century.

And that's my name too. So I want to go and get a couple of great photos of me mocking his memory and our name by teetering over the edge myself.

Mooney Falls is AWESOME! To get to the bottom you have to climb down a slippery cliff and hold onto chains that are bolted into the rock. Very fun!
