We started in Albuquerque on Friday and drove to Sedona, AZ. About 7 hours.
Stopped at the Painted Desert. Apparently you need to go at sunrise or sunset, or boost the colors in photoshop!
Into Sedona by sunset. My mom & I stopped for a little wine tasting by the hotel. :)
In the morning it was off to the Grand Canyon! Another 5 hours in the car!
We stopped at the Navajo Bridge that crosses a "narrow" and "shallow" part of the Grand Canyon.
Past the Vermilion Cliffs.
Through the Kaibab National Forest. It wasn't all burned!
And finally to the Grand Canyon North Rim Lodge. They were having a guided tour of the sky that night!!
And finally home on Sunday through the Navajo & Hopi Reservations. About an 8 hour drive.
