Getting Away is Good For The Soul

This summer I went on a road trip…

I joined my family on their 6 week road trip across the country for 12 days. This journey took me to some amazing places in Arizona and Colorado.

Grand Canyon National Park
Bryce Canyon National Park
Arches National Park
Mesa Verde National Park
Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

So many highlights to capture. Just a few are… Bike rides along the rim of the Grand Canyon. Hiking to the bottom of Bryce Canyon. A morning hike over a rock face to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. Touring 2 Pueblo cliff side dwellings at Mesa Verde (one of which required climbing near vertical ladders and scaling a cliff face). Experiencing a vertical drop of nearly 2,000 ft at Black Canyon. There are no words or photos that can capture the feelings of the many moments that force you to take pause and realize just how small you are in the scheme of time.

A rough map of the area covered in less than 2 week’s time.
