We relaxed at home for a little while and then Todd and I headed over to Wine Time, a local wine bar that my family really likes. No trip to Anthem is complete without a stop there.
Well, Wednesday wasn't such a great day to go to the Grand Canyon. It was cold (32-ish) with every type of precipitation imaginable. Next time, I will make sure to check the weather sooner than 2 days in advance and be flexible with plans if necessary. We were planning on having a picnic, but the rain/sleet/snow put a damper on those plans and we ended up walking around the visitor's center and then taking a quick look of the view in that area before running back to the car for cover. We drove along the south rim, though, and got ahead of the weather and were able to get out for a few good photo ops. On the way back to Anthem, we stopped at the Wupatki National Park and saw the volcano and a crater.
