The Grand Canyon

This April, my daughter, Sarah, her husband Dave, and their daughter, Alexandra, and I, took a trip to the Grand Canyon to celebrate Sarah's 30th birthday. Since Dave's one-year job, as a clerk for a Federal Judge, took the family to Phoenix, it seemed like the best time to take advantage of the proximity to the Grand Canyon.

The second day we ventured down into the Canyon, hiking about 1,200 ft. down, yet well above the bottom, 4,500 ft. below.

Alexandra was a real trooper bouncing

along in Dave's backpack.

The views from the rim were spectacular!....and watching Alexandra was great as well. She had great time with her grandpa.

The last day of the trip we followed the canyon east, on our way back to Flagstaff, and then sidetracked to Sedona, as we worked out way back to Phoenix.

Not once was a fly rod in view during the fantastic weekend! Hard to believe, I know, but there's really nothing like being with family!

Only a few weeks until I will be with Jen, my oldest daughter, and her family, in Eagle River Alaska!
