Many of you may have already visited my highlight reel over at My 3rd Eye. Still, I thought it was a good place to start my 2019 season of Utah photos. The June trip actually started in Nevada. And, of course, the photo above is from the Grand Canyon - in Arizona. So, obviously, we saw more than one state. It really was an action packed trip. The best of the Southwest.
First, we hightailed it to the North Rim. We had the worst Navajo taco ever made at the lodge: a soggy fry bread crust, unseasoned and fatty brisket strips, and a curiously sour/odd tasting guacamole. The waiter seemed to sense our disgust, asking us over and over if it was O.K. We lied and said it was fine. Heck, the place was packed and we didn't want to waste time waiting for another entree. Besides, other than the lodge, we were in the middle of nowhere. So, it's the lodge or a dirt sandwich. (we had to travel back to Minnesota to get a first rate fry bread taco at Sand Castle on Lake Nokomis)
Any-hoo, look at the view! That was all that mattered. I can finally say I've seen the Grand Canyon.
Bryce Canyon over-look. Breathtaking. We both decided Bryce was super nice. Our favorite park.
The vertical monoliths of Zion National Park = hunks of happiness.
