Backing up...

Let's begin at the beginning. We took off Thursday around lunch time - we wanted to beat the storm and worse, the rush hour traffic. Here's where we stopped along the way to shake some lead out...

Big Dude really likes the bottom left pic SOOC, so here's his preferred version:

Back on the road, we set up the computer for "movie time"...

And then the next morning, the computer changed functions and became the "classroom" so Eldest Dude wouldn't have to miss his online Classical Writing class. Gotta love technology!

And that pretty much brings us up to where we load into the car to get our first magnificent view of the canyon. ha!

I too love technology and the versatility it brings!

I wish I could see these, they won't load..
I had no idea you went grand canyoning.... so we need to chat, and I want to hear all about it.

And somehow, in the midst of all that, you were able to be our "judge of the week" too Susan. You rock! :)

Is that in Nevada? We used to take trips frm East to West across Nevada, to visit cousins in CA from UT. Our car broke down in the desert no less than six times, and we ALWAYS had to wait for another car to come and help us. On a nearly deserted road.
Don't you love family road trips!

We use the computer for videos too!

tearese - nope, not Nevada. (tho, not far). it's the Mojave desert just outside Barstow. and oh, I feel your pain. Being broken down in the desert - NOT FUN!
