Before we left on our trip to the Grand Canyon, we first had to get John's credit card that he left at the restaurant the night before. Unfortunately now, Tom-tom has decided to not work and we have to "rough it" without a GPS telling us where to go
On the way to Arizona, there tons of trains and I'm not talking about little trains. These trains had 100+ cars and went all across the horizon. There was also tons of signs for deer again but still there were none to be found. We made a quick stop to the Petrified Forest National Park and I bought an Arizona shot glass. Since Kansas, I have bought a shot glass in every state we have been in and I will continue to do so. I may just buy some of the states I missed on eBay.
When we got the Grand Canyon, it was pretty impressive. It was super humid and there was a haze so it almost looked like a backdrop. John and I did a little more hiking this trip down into the canyon a ways (4 mile hike total). I thought I was on vacation! But it was a great experience. I wasn't impressed with the restaurants in the area though but where else are you going to go?
Now we had 2 days without plans between now and Vegas so we were debating on going to Utah or Phoenix but we decide to spend the 2 extra days in Vegas grabbing a room at the Golden Nugget! So next stop, VIVA LAS VEGAS!
