This week we went to The Grand Canyon AND The Petrified Forest, both in Arizona.
Below are pictures from The Grand Canyon on a very wet, cold and cloudy day. Still spectacular!
We are staying in hotels for the most part and have racked up enough points with Expedia that we are getting some good deals. This place was only $42 a night!
Speaking of deals, we have found Trader Joe's to be a great place to buy simple meals to cook on our plug in burner and use the coffee pot to heat water for oatmeal. We also have a plug in cooler that holds our hot sauces (a must in this family), cheese, yogurt and leftovers.
We definitely do a lot more on the road then we did in "real life". I was laid up on the couch for most of the past 3 +years with hip pain from the days that I did get out and move around - not to mention recovery from 2 hip surgeries. I'm not back to normal and often have to take it easy and we have to adjust our plans according to my hip pain, but we are still managing to experience so much - and I love it!
If you haven't read it, the best price is Amazon - Kindle or paperback. Check out his reviews and order a copy and let us know what you think!
