8AM Pacific time
We’ve had our obligatory McDonalds breakfast (on point), and are on our way to the Grand Canyon. I personally couldn’t be more excited, as the natural aspects of this trip are really the biggest pull from my perspective. It’s been a dream of mine to see our countries national parks for years now, and the Grand Canyon is right there at the top. The painted desert was so magnificent I was reduced to screaming obscene exclamations and pointing wildly, I’m slightly worried the canyon will just break my vocabulary flat out. The area around us is not at all what you’d picture in Arizona. We’re driving through massive pine forests with a gorgeous mountain backdrop looming over us, it almost feels like we’re in the alps. Our cell coverage is shoddy, so we’ll update when we can. More updates to come.
