We made it! Finally at the Grand Canyon, we enjoyed 15 minutes of daylight before the sun set, but boy was it worth it. We’ll post more soon, but for now, enjoy our first view.
Our Southwest roadtrip adventure has arrived! After a 6 a.m. flight tomorrow morning (blargh), we’ll be exploring Route 66, Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Mesa Verde, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and more for the next 9 days.

After each trip, there is the inevitable letdown Jess and I feel when our vacation is done. As regular readers know, we are heading on a SW roundtrip (in less than one month!). But this time when we come back, we have something to look forward to – ITALY! Continue reading
