Road Trip Day 2: Grand Canyon and Old Friends

sunny 75 °F

We originally had hoped to leave Phoenix early enough on the first day of our trip to allow for an afternoon visit to the Grand Canyon. Even though the movers loaded us too late for that to be possible, we didn't want to give up on a visit to the Canyon. We had lived in the Grand Canyon State for almost 6 years but hadn't been there, and we didn't know when we would be in the area again, so we didn't want to pass up the opportunity. We spent just a short time at the Mather Point overlook at the South Rim, but the views were incredible.


We definitely would like to return when my daughter is older. Not only will she remember more, the walking won't be so hard for her. Even though we stayed on the level, paved paths to and at the rim, her little legs got tired.

After the Canyon, we returned to Flagstaff for lunch. We had trouble finding a place that had outdoor seating and/or a play area, so we ended up just going through a drive-thru.

We pulled into Albuquerque, our destination for the night, around dinnertime. One of my friends from college lives there, so we met her and her family at a local restaurant. It was great to catch up after so many years!
