What a spectacular week!
We joined my husband's parents and his brother's family in the southwest for a 7-day Caravan tour of the Grand Canyon and other amazing spots.
I took notes, as is my usual travel custom, to help me remember the trip. And to help me write stories about it later. My "quick notes" ended up being 12 pages typed. Hmmm - I had to game plan how I was going to share everything with you. I decided I am going to break everything up according to location. Those posts will be in the American Exploration page of the Travel section.

Our Trip in Extreme Brief List Form
I don't want to give away too much now. The posts about each individual place will be more detailed and photo-heavy. But here is a quick breakdown of our 9-day journey:
Day 1 - Fly from south Florida to Phoenix, AZ. Caravan Welcome Meeting at 6pm.
Day 2 - Bus ride to the Grand Canyon National Park with a quick stop at Montezuma's Castle and a long stop in Sedona, AZ.
Day 3 - Grand Canyon National Park, brief morning trip to Desert View Lookout.
Day 4 - Jeep ride through Monument Valley, then continue on to Lake Powell Resort.
Day 5 - Morning boat cruise through Antelope Canyon.
Day 6 - Quick stop in Kanad, UT then onto Bryce Canyon for a longer stop. After Bryce, we headed on toward Zion National Park in Utah.
Day 7 - Spent the day at Zion National Park, private tram ride in the morning.
Day 8 - Bus ride to Las Vegas. The tour officially ends at the LV Airport, but we tacked on a night in Sin City.
Day 9 - Morning in Vegas, then fly home.
Sounds fun, right? I'm excited to share this with you.

Nothing super fancy here. Probably not life changing either. But you might enjoy a peek into our world.
