Days 15 & 16: Phoenix to Yosemite


We spent these two days on a driving binge. We left our friend Fitz's house in Scottsdale, Arizona in the evening, encountered a vehicular homicide, then drove through the night arriving in Las Vegas at dawn. We cleaned up in one of the casinos and continued on through Death Valley and on to Yosemite in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Day 14: The Grand Canyon


Today we dedicate ourselves to the Grand Canyon. We started out the morning exploring the north rim of the canyon, then drove for hours through the Painted Desert and over to the south rim of the canyon in time to see the long, afternoon shadows.

Day 13: Zion National Park


We explored Zion National Park, hiking up the Virgin River for several miles, and driving around its beautiful valley. Later, we headed down the road a little to northern Arizona.

Day 11: Hovenweep to Bryce Canyon


We camped at Hovenweep National Monument last night and explored the ancient ruin this morning. We drove into Monument Valley, over the Glen Canyon Bridge in Arizona, then headed back into Utah and up to Bryce Canyon.
