This spring break presented the opportunity to check off "SEE THE GRAND CANYON" from my bucket list. Phoenix, Arizona is only a 2 1/2 hour flight from Seattle, same time zone, and most importantly sunny and warm!!
We stayed at the Grand Resort and spent most of the record breaking heat days - 100 degrees! - in the lazy river (covered in lots of sun protection since we are pale Seattlites)
two days we ventured forth for a fabulous driving adventure into the desert
Jerome - an old copper mining town
with a real cowboy named Montana Gail who helped us pan for gold
Sedona, so I could spin in vortex energy
a groovy kaleidoscope focused on some pansies
the pink jeep tour was the highlight for my boys
the Red Rocks were magically stunning
the next day we found the meteor crater
and drove some more to the GRAND CANYON..oooooohhhh....ahhhhhh -CHECK!
As the itouches died and we were forced to talk, laugh, and have fun going fast with windows rolled down on our way back to Phoenix, I was overcome with gratitude for my boys, for my courage to grow with open heart, and for a life becoming more sublime with each passing day!
