{You Can See It From Space}

It being the Grand Canyon.

That's where our Valentine's Day road trip took us. We
had a really nice time, and man, it was such a site to see.
This was David's first time. Mother Nature covered it in
a wee blanket of snow just for him. :)

The only thing we were missing was a bit of cloud cover.

But before you see *it*, I have to share a bit of the
lovliness we saw on the way up. Like Humphreys Peak
in Flagstaff and the birch trees lining the side of the
highway, nestled into the snow. You pass such varied
landscape in just a few hours in this state. I love it.

And now, onto the feature attraction . . .
{Note: I took less people and more canyon shots when I
was there in August of '08. Click here to see those.}

It was a lot of driving for one day, but we had fun. It was nice just
to be together -- chatting, laughing, looking, talking -- without any
appointments or work or calls. Good stuff.

How beautiful!! I have been to the Grand Canyon, but not since I was practically a baby. I must go back again so I can enjoy it as an adult!

I'm so happy you and D got to get away. What a fun trip to take for your very first co-celebrated Valentine's Day!
