This year for Thanksgiving, my awesome family decided to go on vacation to Arizona — which just so happen to be where my boyfriend lives! The trip started off with two 12 hour days on the road. Of course getting through Nebraska was long and boring, but the second day we finally made it to the Rockies! We entered Utah for our first time and took some back dirt road that was supposedly a short cut, and it made for some jokes about getting lost out here forever… We pulled over at a random rest stop to check out the scenery.
Because of our short cut, we were able to make a short stop at the Navajo National Monument in Northern AZ. We walked down the short trail to check out the canyon and monument in the rocks.
Finally, Day 3 we made it to the Grand Canyon! It was our first time ever seeing it! We started with a short walk on the rim checking out the views. Later, we went for a short hike on the South Kaibab Trail.
