Well, here we are in Phoenix, Arizona. What was supposed to be a 45 minute layover turned into 24 hours. (I didn't pick the flight. Knew 45 minutes wouldn't be enough) We arrived at the gate after the doors closed but the plane still in sight and they didn't let us in. We waited around and talked to customer service. The initial flight they put us on was leaving Tuesday at 3pm and getting in at an insane hour of the morning! Luckily Dad is inventive and through his suggestions we ended up w/ leaving @ 9pm Monday, overnight in Vancouver and leaving for Edmonton @ 8am Tues.
All in all today was good. We had meals and hotel on US Air. We went to the Phoenix Zoo and had some fun. I rode a camel. (Ooo and Aaa) Most exciting for me was that I saw desert. I have never been in an area w/palm trees and cactuses. I like it. Unfortunately (in
one sense) we ran out of time and didn't get to hike up Camelback Mountain. I did get close though and went in other deserty areas.
Now as we wait for our 9pm flight we are hoping to get on the PHX-EDM flight tonight. Cross your fingers everyone.
