Arizona ambling (for JB)

By all reports we came up route 64 (180?) and parked in the main parking areas.  We all used the restroom in facilities that looked like this:

Somewhere around there we saw this sign.  If you see the "You Are Here" label towards the eastern side, I am reasonably confident that we followed that red line to get to the rim path.

The view from that area looked a lot like this:

We walked down some paths.  I'm not sure whether this path was parallel to the rim or if this was us getting TO the rim.

Here we are definitely at the rim.

We came across this sign and headed east towards Yavapai Observation Station.

These are some landmark vistas that we saw between the sign and the ashes spot.

This is us leaving that last vista.

Walking down the path headed east still.

Here is the spot.

View from the spot.

Ash throwing in action.

We got to Yavapai Observation Station afterwards, so my educated guess based on signage and timeline is that the spot is about half a mile west of Yavapai.

Hope this helps!  :)

(sorry about the watermarks, I didn't take all these pictures but forgot to turn the marker off!)

Likes & Dislikes

Z - watching his two shows everyday, reenacting Caillou adventures with himself as the main character, playing with play dough, drawing with sidewalk chalk, making mischief, WHY mommy WHY, talking to his (imaginary?) friend Henry
N - using WORDS!!!!!, doing it himself (SELF, mommy, SELF!), "bruffsh"ing his "teef," trying to sleep in big brother's bed, reading books, giving hugs (especially to Z, who is less enthusiastic), instigating with his brother (Z asks a question, N says "NO, Z. NO."  Z hates it!), asking WHY just because Z does, throwing monumental tantrums
Mommy - being able to understand N more often, seeing how far I can go with WHY before resorting to "physics, buddy, physics"

Z - staying inside, staying WITH mommy instead of running off wherever he wants, not having WHY answered every time,
N - being told NO, having someone forget to let him do it SELF
Mommy - having to answer the same WHY multiple times in five minutes (the answer didn't change, child!), tantrums when I didn't understand what N was saying
