May 17 – Las Vegas to San Francisco

We had breakfast at the buffet which while expensive (what isn’t in this town?) was exceptional.  The corn beef hash was yummy, if I’d had a Ziploc I’d have filled it.  That would have been disgusting to look at though, wouldn’t it?    Not wanting to break my no-gambling streak I headed back to the […]

May 16 – Route 66 and Oatman

We had breakfast at the hotel and the dining room was PACKED.  Funny how if you’re up at 6:00 a.m. there’s nobody here.  We hit the road to Williams and then headed out on Route 66.  The first town we went through, Seligman, was the best as far as Americana and tackiness (including a Road […]

May 15 – Grand Canyon

After a carbo-load breakfast (because evidently I think I’m riding a bike 100 miles) we drove over to the Canyon and began our hike down to Indian Garden.  About 45 minutes into the hike down (remember, I hate down – I’m constantly worried about wiping out and screwing my back up [more]) I asked Charlotte […]

May 14 – Four Corners and The Grand Canyon

Had a delightful breakfast of Greek Yogurt from Safeway before we began our drive to – oh my god, finally! – The Grand Canyon.  We were a few minutes out of Cortez when Charlotte realized she can’t find her wallet.  Back to the hotel, not there; call Mesa Verde to see if they have it, […]

May 13 – Mesa Verde National Park

Started the day with a HUGE breakfast at the El Grande Café.  Lots of green chilis, cheese and eggs.  YUM.  As we were sitting at our table we noticed a JCPenney catalog pick up sign on a store across the street.  I can’t believe those are still around.  Catalog pick up spots AND JC Penney […]

May 12 – Monument Valley

I’m enjoying this trip but geez, the driving distances are huge!  We’re driving to Monument Valley when all of a sudden I see “The Wild West” off in the distance.  We’re still at least a half hour drive from MV but there it is.  And the sky isn’t even clear.  I’m not sure if that’s […]

May 11 – Antelope Canyon

Since John and Charlotte both naturally wake up at ungodly hours like 5:00 a.m. we were at Horseshoe Bend by 7:00.  It’s quite something to see.  Not only is it an incredible site (the Colorado River making a huge loop around a very large rock), it would be incredibly easy to plummet to your death […]

May 10 – Kodachrome Basin State Park

Up around 7:00 and after a yummy  breakfast of Frosted Flakes (the hotel has a great store with prices cheaper than what I pay at home) we headed out.  Took a photo of all of us, including Mini-Ree, at the Bryce Canyon sign and then headed for Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument to see Kodachrome Basin […]

May 9 – Bryce Canyon

After a huge buffet breakfast we headed into Bryce and after a quick stop at the Visitor Center we set off on an 8.8 mile hike on the Fairyland trail.  This scenery is just incredible.  I’ve seen pictures but they don’t do it justice.  Everything is so large and magnificent; it really makes you feel […]

May 8 – San Francisco to Bryce Canyon

I received an email last night from Virgin, letting me know I could check in via the web.  Fortunately I noticed they had pushed back my flight by 1-1/2 hours.  Cancelled my original 6:00 a.m. Super Shuttle pick up, rescheduled for 7:45 and changed the alarm clock from 5:00 to 6:45.  YEAH!  Charlotte and John […]
