Virtual Hike to Bullfrog

I am a little late with this post, but my virtual hike has continued and I recently made it to my latest way point at Bullfrog, Utah.

The progress of my virtual hike has slowed down lately, and I really need to get back to taking long nightly walks. Tonight was an example. The combination of temps in the low 40’s and a good book kept me on the couch reading and watching a basketball game.

See: Virtual Hike to Escalante Much of the hike has been through the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. This area has been in the news this month, so it was interesting to think that I was virtually hiking there.

The next destination will be another place that I would like to visit someday. My younger sister and her family visited there earlier this year.

The Four Corners Monument has always been a bit intriguing, but more about it after I virtually hike the 142 miles. I am actually already 20 miles along the way. Unfortunately the Google car has never driven along the highway from Halls Crossing so I will not be able to enjoy the first part of virtual hike as much.
