Derek and I just got back from our yearly Cali trip to see my family. We took about two weeks off all together. Yes, we have tons of pictures! We have so many, in fact, that I am going to split them up into 3 different posts. Here is the first:
As you've probably noticed, Derek and I have sort of created a new tradition which requires us to plan a mini side trip to somewhere in between Utah and California every time we drive down. We hit Moab last Thanksgiving, Canyon lands one of the times, and of course Vegas is always a fantastic back up plan.
So this time we chose the Grand Canyon! Granted, it was a bit further out of the way than most, but Derek had never seen the Grand Canyon before, and I had never been to the North Rim. Totally worth it!

Don't even worry, there are plenty more sleeping Tundra's to come. I think that's pretty much all he did the whole drive.
|Lunch stop. Okay food. Amazing waiter dude! Gave us so much info about hikes and such|
|Oh and..... they are famous for their cookies! We couldn't even choose one each. Fatties! |
The s'mores one was pure evil
|Tundra was fearless up there|
|Love this one!|
Gorgeous drive on the way into the campground
|Our awesome campground. One tent, two chairs, and lots of junk food!|
|Just roastin' weenies|
|Chili dogs! |
I'm choosing not to go into detail about our torturous fight to get the fire started. It's far too embarrassing
|The moon. At 5am|
|5 am faces...|
|The sun wasn't up yet and the moon was so full and bright. Pretty amazing|
Brace yourself for a sunrise picture overload. They were all just too pretty
|We all love cheese right...|
|Sunlight creeping through the canyons|
|Mules that you can ride down the canyon|
|Yah, I just ended with a giant, angel kiss wish|
