Going down to pick up my son in Arizona. Decided to make the trip a hiking trip. Staying 2 nights on the Cherokee campgrounds in NC, then 2 nights in Big Bend camping and rafting, then on to Saguaro NP in Arizona for 2 night.

On the trip back, with my son, we'll hike / camp at Carlsbad, Hot Springs, and Mammoth.

Not a bad holiday trip.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intent of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride!
