3/27/2011  Virgin River, AZ - I have hiked around the Virgin River Canyon campground, which I do camp-out to join the Outback Hiking Club of Southern Utah at St. George. The water level of the Virgin River is too high to cross the river without wet, so that I hiked west side of the river. The Road Runner walked slowly in front of me, is that still called the Runner?

3/26/2011  Silver Reef Ghost Town, UT - It is located less than one mile west from I-15 exit 23. It was weird to see the ghost town surrounding with new residential developments. There were over 4,000 people use to live in this ghost town, when silver mines were booming. At that time miner's wage was $4/day, where $25/hr (or $200/day) for today. This was the rare place to find the silver from the sandstone.

3/23/2011  Freezeout Lake, MT - The sky with full of birds that I wanted to see it. I am happy now because I saw it with my naked eyes. It was amaizing phenomenon to see the tons of birds fly simultaneously and blue sky becomes dark sky by flying birds covered the sky. Only one thing I didn't expected that birds talk a lot, it was very noisy environment.

3/19/2011  Snake Gulch, AZ (OHCOSU) - The hike was 13.5 miles in-&-out hike on the bottom of the valley. It was just like a treasure hunting, the treasure was the pictgraphs in this case.

He is visiting from MN. Click here for the slideshow.
