Maybe it's because most of our drive looked like this, or maybe it's because part of the trip was on Rt 66 but "Life is a Highway" was totally playing in my head.

We happened upon the Hoover Dam.

We caught a not-to-shabby sunset.

By the time we got to the canyon (and our campsite) it was dark.

It was around the time we set up the tent that I thought to myself “We should really be staying in the lodge.” Tomorrow I’ll try and cover all the great pictures of the Canyon we took while marveled at its beauty. (This was before we hiked down into it… when it stopped being pretty and started being Mordor.)
