A Grand start to the year


The year began with a jump into an icy lake, and now continues with an amazing climb in the Grand Canyon! I am simply in awe of the beauty of Arizona. To be so small in such a vast expanse is somewhat refreshing-no, downright spiritual.

If you've never made the journey, I highly reccomend it. We drove down through Sedona and caught the red rocks at sunset-just so happened that the moon was rising simulataneously-and it was full.

I think I'm moving to Arizona. Being in Flagstaff reminded me of all that I loved about growing up in the Rockies.

Tomorrow we go to the expo/packet pick up-I can't wait to run down palm and orange tree lined streets!

Noooooo. My high school ruined the Grand Canyon for me. 18 mile hike, streaming hot day, no shade. Ugh. I remember at one time thinking it was beautiful, but that hike wasn't fun at all.

Got your email. I'll reply soon, so be sure to check your junk mail folder. :)

GOOD LUCK at Changs tomorrow!!!
