Fourteen days, twelve states, and approximately 4,100 miles. Coast to Coast…what a fun voyage!

We had a late start today, which was a bit concerning since we had intended to try to do the Utah National Park trifecta today….Arches, Bryce, and Zion Parks.

Grand Canyon or Bust…. For all snapshots of the Grand Canyon – click here! As we drove closer to the Grand Canyon I had visions of the Brady Bunch heading out in their wood paneled station wagon for their Grand Canyon trip. The Brady’s got ‘locked up’ at a ghost town before they reached the [...]
