Travel Log

For our anniversary in November we spent a night at Camp Verde and saw Montezuma's Castle and Montezuma's Well (which happens to be a cenote!) the next day.

Eleven years {fatter and} happier! Man, that sun is bright.

Later that month I was able to have a short visit with my parents in northern Arizona. We went shopping {an all-day event when you live two hours from any town!}, toured the Glen Canyon Dam, and my father and I hiked to Supai Tunnel in the Grand Canyon.

Standing on the dam.


At the bottom, looking up. I just really liked this photo.


The bridge crossing the canyon. Why do these things always looks so much cooler in life?


See all that green at the bottom? That's grass...mowed and everything! It keeps the sand foundation from blowing away.


My last Grand Canyon hike of the year. It's all covered in snow now!



I love hiking with my dad!

Things that made me smile:

Harry Potter's Firebolt on display inside the Glen Canyon Dam? It sure seemed funny at the time.


Got denim?


Warring breads, shelved back-to-back - where's the peace-keeping Swiss Rye?


I saw four of these! So many questions . . .


The maintenance workers at the dam rode through the dam on these bikes. I think I want one!


The turbines inside the dam. Sorry, but the artist in me was just FASCINATED by all the symmetry, lines, and colors. I really did smile.


Missed my kids . . . but only a little.
