The Grand Canyon is a steep-sided gorge carved by the Colorado River in the U.S. state of Arizona. It is largely contained within the Grand Canyon National Park ? one of the first national parks in the United States. President Theodore Roosevelt was a major proponent of preservation of the Grand Canyon area, and visited on numerous occasions to hunt and enjoy the scenery. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  Ravished ramblers in the ravine.

TRAGF  =  GRAFT,  GEAAD  =  ADAGE,  FADEET  =  DEFEAT,  FOHODE  =  HOOFED   —   Giving us:  GRGDOE

Clue/Question:  After hiking down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, they . . .

Answer:  GORGED

(According to the rali95 clue word database, we have three new clue words in today’s puzzle!  It appears that “graft”, “defeat” and “hoofed” are all new!  Not a lot you can do with an answer letter layout with so few letters, so I guess today’s was just okay.  Beautiful cartoon, though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Believe it or not, hoofed kinda stumped me, had never seen it written before. I do like all the puzzles — some are harder, some are not quite as hard–it just continues to amaze me how our guyz continue to pump them out. Thank you!! And thank you Unc!!!

    YUR:

    Haven’t seen three new words in one puzzle in quite awhile! Hoyt keeps us hopping, doesn’t he? How’s the weather we’re sending you weekly doing? Want more, or is it time to opt for an early spring?

    I’m not complaining, ralis95! I like 4 seasons that hit you over the head! I’ve got enough subtlety in my life. Hope you and the missus are holding up well.

    — YUR 🙂
