On the Road - Day 2










Greetings from the road. I mean that literally. I am writing this in my car on I-15 at 10:40 PM. Hang on….gotta change lanes here……no, not really. My brother is driving right now. It has been a heck of a day. Currently, we are running behind schedule. We should have been in Salt Lake City by now, but have run into some obstacles. More on that later.

We woke up this morning in beautiful Flagstaff, AZ. I had no idea that Arizona had forested mountain areas. It reminded me of Northern California. Anyway, we made the 50 mile trek to Grand Canyon National Park. All I gotta say (clears throat and tries his best Keanu Reeves voice) ‘whoa.’ Freakin’ amazing! I won’t even attempt to put into words what it was like. If you have never been there, make it a point to go sometime!

The only downside was that my 1 yr. old nephew, Carl, had been running a temperature the last couple of days and it hit 103 today. So, we stopped at the clinic that was located in the park to get him checked out. That took about an hour and then another hour at the Wal-Mart in Paige, AZ., near Lake Powell, to fill a prescription to help the little guy out with an ear infection.

So, we are hoping to get into Salt Lake by 1 AM and hit the sack. The plan is to get into Yellowstone National Park in the afternoon. I am really looking forward to seeing that. But, I just have to say how awesome the scenery was coming out of the Grand Canyon and into southern Utah! It was like we were on another planet.

See ya!
