My anticipation was building on our (somewhat recent) 2 hour 'road trip' from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon with 2 of my favorite people, my stylish aunt&uncle, who are more like my best friends. They live in AZ, and this was my first time ever to see the Canyon! There were a few questionable truck stops we passed by (reminded us of scenes from the twisted Brad Pitt & Juliet Lewis serial killer movie Kalifornia)...however, I loved driving through the Painted Desert, the reservations, and stopping by different trading posts and Native American jewelry stands along the way. The original handmade turquoise pieces were hard to pass up...
Breathtaking...no wonder it's one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The background looks more like a painting than a photograph. We had a picnic on some beach towels we found in the trunk, and made sure to NOT feed the huge crow who was eying our sandwiches. I don't think he wanted my beer though...only one allowed at high altitudes like this ;)
Then we had our contrived Thelma and Louise moment....we always end up somehow laughing to the point of peeing in our pants when we're together, I love that.
