Arizona – March 2009: Part 1 – Grand Canyon

June 24th, 2011 by

I’d wanted to go out to Arizona for quite some time, with the primary goal to be seeing the Grand Canyon. Short of stopping through Phoenix airport, and the tiny corner of the state you drive through to get to Zion, I’d never even been in Arizona at all before. Erin and I drove out on March 25, 2009. We met up with Alex, Beth, and Dave just south of the Grand Canyon. We spent two (cold) nights camping there, doing a day hike in the canyon. We then drove out to Petrified Forest National Park, stopping on the way to check out the Wupatki Pueblo and the Sunset Crater National Monuments. We spent one night camping in the Painted Desert in Petrified Forest, then checked out a bunch of sights in the southern side of the park before heading back to Phoenix. We spent one night there, before Erin and I drove back to CA and Alex, Beth and Dave flew off to their respective homes.

the canyon, oh yes.
