Grand Canyon Trip...

Saturday, August 02, 2014

I did want to share some photos from our 5300 mile car trip from Virginia to the Grand Canyon and back. We went to Dallas/Ft. Worth first for a family wedding and I got to see my Dad who is doing well at 95! Then we went to El Paso, up to Phoenix where we visited friends we had not seen in 30 years! Then we went to Sedona - one of the most beautiful places in the US! Then up to Grand Canyon (South Rim). From there to the Painted Desert, Petrified Forest and then Albequerque where I got to see my college girlfriend who I had not seen in over 40 years! Then on home to VA. So here are some photos! This trip was on my bucket list so I guess I can scratch that one off the list.

My Dad and My Neice's baby at the wedding

my husband and John & Norma in Phoenix

In Phoenix Area - the Saguaro Cactus that I just love

Me in Sedona AZ

Sedona Sunset

Red Rocks of Sedona

Fred & Me at Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon

My Friend June & Me in Albequerque

This is probably TMI, but this trip and the photos are so meaningful to me that I just had to share them. Some of you may live near these places. The highlights for me were the folks we were able to visit with after so many years. Email just doesn't cut it sometimes. We will be seeing them again someday. So this trip was a blessing for both of us.

Later,
