Ahhh I am loving my family vacation! I have so many pictures and I cannot wait to upload them to my computer so that I can share them. We have seen so many amazing, beautiful things. We drove up to Utah last weekend and hiked both Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. We have been in Flagstaff, Arizona since Tuesday and I love it here! This is our third trip to the state and it has yet to get old. Yesterday we went to see the Grand Canyon; the last two times we visited Arizona, we came in February and the cloud cover over the G.C. was too thick to see anything. So we were so excited to finally check it out. It was breathtaking and so huge! Of the three canyons we visited, though, I have to say that Zion was by far my favorite - the colors were just brilliant.
Today I bought a beautiful piece of Navajo jewelry in Oak Creek Canyon, just outside of Sedona. It's a stunning sterling silver band with an oval stone set on top - Mediterranean coral. SO BEAUTIFUL! I love it, I love it, I love it. The woman who helped me pick out my ring was named Brenda and she was so gorgeous and sweet. We talked for a bit and she asked where I go to school and when I told her, she told me that she actually used to live in Northampton! Small world, right? :)
Tomorrow we are spending the day around Flagstaff, and then on Sunday we are visiting a wildlife reserve. I cannot waitttttttttt!
