alright Goat, help me out with the line from Vacation about the Grand Canyon
Howdy. So yesterday we camped at Fish River. I guess they don’t spend too much time thinking about what to call things around here in Namibia, Dune 45, Fish River. The campsite was alright, nothing too great, but it was near Fish River Canyon. I don’t know if you’ve heard of Fish River Canyon (I certainly hadn’t) but it’s apperantly the second largest canyon in the world. It was a 10k bike ride from camp to the canyon. Many people waited for one of the trucks to come take them, but I elected to ride there (I certainly don’t seem to get enough bike riding in on a normal day). I am very glad I did. It was a quiet dusty, crappy road to ride along and most of it was uphill. However once I got there I was able to ride my bike up the little path and all the way out to the viewing point. If you’ve been to the Grand Canyon then you know how annoying all the tourist can be there (even if you haven’t been there, ya can probably guess). I was the only one there. It was incredible. After peeing into it (this was kinda unavoidable) I sat as close to the edge as I dared and just stared. I couldn’t get over the immensity of the thing. How can a huge hole in the ground be that majestic? I later heard that all the people who rode the truck to it stayed together and didn’t go all the way up the path. Yet another reason for always riding your bike everywhere. That is all for now, we’re riding into S. Africa tomorrow, and then only a few more days till Cape Town!
