It’s always great when you can have  fun at work!  Someone at the park service at the Grand Canyon had a brilliant idea when they took a skeleton on a tour of the park.  Mr. Bones showed up at the South Entrance of the Grand Canyon and proceeded to take a tour that ended at Desert View.

Mr. Bones saw some incredible view and even shared an alfresco lunch with his pets.

After lunch he went and checked in to his campground spot and got everything all set for when he was done sightseeing at the end of the day.

Even the ravens got in to the act.  It’s a good thing Mr. Bones left his food in the car.  Those ravens can be very tricky and aren’t afraid to help themselves to your snacks.

I don’t know how he got out to that point, but Mr. Bones is enjoying a nice view of the Colorado River. I hope he’s careful when he gets up to go back to his car and move on to the next point.

Here he is at the Desert View Watchtower enjoying those magnificent reflectographs.  They are black mirrors that give back an incredible reflection.  If you visit the ones on the terrace upstairs, you can see views of the Grand Canyon, upside down!  They reflect the canyon in even more beautiful color than the actual view.  They are fun to look at are not to be missed.

As the day has come to a close, Mr. Bones is enjoying a nice sunset.  I am sure he is glad he has already set up his tent.  All he has to do is get something to eat and then retire to his cozy tent.  He will be able to get a great meal at Maswik Lodge that will put some meat on his bones!  It won’t take long either as the cafeteria style menu will be quick to put some food on his tray and in to his belly.  Let’s hope it doesn’t leak out!

A big thank you to the Park Service that came up with this idea!
