Road Trippin'

Last week my mama flew to CA to take a road trip with me.
Our mission was to find a place for Z & I to live in CO, 
where Z has gotten a new job.

But instead of taking the quickest route, 
we decided to take advantage of the opportunity
to visit places we'd never been.

Just like Thelma & Louise
(minus the guns, murder, theft, Wild Turkey, 
and the whole driving over a cliff thing)
we set out for an adventure!

We found out that the name Grand Canyon
is a bit of an understatement, 
and know that we will have to return some day
when we have more than 2 1/2 hours.

Then we made our way through
the Painted Desert, Monument Valley, 
and past Arches NP before
heading over the Colorado mountains.

Love this shot Mama took of the arch
out the car window!

It was such an awesome trip
seeing part of this country I had never seen, 
laughing and talking with my mama,
and getting to know our new home.

Beautiful! My favorite landscapes. Be sure to let us know if you need an old chinese lady to show you the ropes in the Colorado casinos! I hope we can make it out there again soon.
