we be roadtrippin' {the Grand Canyon}

The Grand Canyon... wow! Just WOW!! I can't even explain how this place took my breath away with it's beauty! 
It's no secret that I love to be outdoors and exploring, and of course Mia is even more obsessed with the outdoors than I am! I hadn't been to the Grand Canyon since I was little and really have no memories from that trip, so when I realized we could take a detour on the way home from Flagstaff to visit, I knew we had to! It was the perfect pit stop to let Mia have a break from the car! My one regret is that we didn't spend more time enjoying this beautiful corner of the Earth!
The drive to the north rim is gorrrrgeous! You are in the mountains with trees for days and beautiful meadows! We saw buffalo on the drive (my first time seeing them in the wild!) and enjoyed the greenery. I don't know what I was expecting when we arrived at the Grand Canyon, but my jaw dropped with the colors and beauty we witnessed. I could go on and on about how much I loved this place, but instead I'll share the two newest goals added to my never ending bucket list :) I want to escape life for a weekend and stay in one of the cabin's with a view to the Canyon! The second will probably kill me, but I want to hike from the south rim to the north rim... someday! 
If you ever have the chance to visit the Grand Canyon, it's a must see!! I'm so glad Eric puts up with my wanderlust and visits these amazing places with me!

It is by the far the most beautiful place I've ever been.
Seriously.....
I told Brad that for my 40th I would love to raft the Grand Canyon.
That's about 1-year away :)

I'm glad you seized the moment and did this because it's stuff like this that I call living! We just visited Glacier and I'm so so happy we did.

GORGEOUS! Love the picture of Mia's hair flying around!

I'd love to see the Grand Canyon. I think it's one of those things that you can't really see the beauty until you see it in person.
