Yesterday was a loooooong day. But a great one! We made it from Amarillo, TX to Kanab, Utah with a stop in Albuquerque, New Mexico! The pic of me and Silas is a selfie (of course) overlooking the Glen Canyon Dam, second only to the Hoover. The full moon last night was spectacular and the way it reflected off the rocks and mountains was beautiful and eerie. New Mexico is definitely the land of enchantment, I could just feel the history as we drove through the southwest. The terrain is absolutely amazing, there’s always something new for your eye to see. We drove through the Hopi Mesas which are the 4 mesas the Hopi Indians have inhabited for hundreds of years.

Today we head to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon to Toroweap Point. To get there requires us to drive on 75 miles worth of windy dirt road. My dad has been there twice and the first time there was no other people there and the second time there were just two vehicles present. So no crowds, no annoying tourists, no fences, no pavement. Just the raw power of the Colorado River. I can’t wait to share pictures!
