i still had a ball though
this is when i was clean...
do you see my bike? it's down there...
needless to say, i had to stop multiple times to clean out the mud so my bike would move...
i'm kinda glad i was alone because i was giggling as a kid as i slid and then was throwing mud out from my brakes and gears

so see the chocolate drops... to the the right in the sunset... yeah we hiked behind those...
but we did make it to the harvest scene...
i'm sorry but i'm a complete sucker for pictographs/petrogyphs and ruins
luckily levi appeased my wants to see this....
and my absolute favorite...
the detailed growing tree coming out of the hand with animals jumping from it. it almost is a creation scene for me.
the hike out was awesome, levi was like a giddy, blissful boy and i'm not sure how many times i heard him comment on how it was the best route out of a canyon he's ever been in. he was in a trance at the maze, he couldn't get enough of the place. he even thanked the nps and sca volunteer when we saw them later on their great route.
we camped at the dollhouse that night and could overlook to the river

the dirt road got worse after the ranger station and needless to say it took us around 5.5 hrs to get to our campsite...i think top speed that day was a few minutes of 20 mph. even levi's monkey was holding on for dear life at times...
yes there's fall colors in the desert finally got to canyonlands... only campin' and hikin' here...

KING LEOPOLD'S GHOST is a shocking tale of the richest country in Africa, claimed by the rapacious King Leopold II of Belgium. Under his greedy reign, the Congo suffered unimaginable horrors. The epic is filled with fascinating adventurers. It is a story brought to life with a treasure trove of archival materials – letters, secret reports and photographs. The film is a culmination of four years of intensive research, a production of international significance and vital relevance to today. Ten million people died under Leopold’s reign, four million more in the last five years. Why? The film, brought up to the present day, demonstrates that “past” is present. The film will be followed \nby a discussion with Rulon Wood from the University of Utah Film Studies Wood has been working on a project which examines the public memories surrounding the Belgian Congo. He has bee shooting in the Royal Museum for Central Africa and interviewing prominent Belgian scholars, historians and colonial veterans.
