After packing up camp in New Mexico we headed west to the Grand Canyon. "Grand" is an understatement because its really hard to get a grasp on how big it really is which also makes it really hard to photograph, but Nick and I were up for the challenge.
For the next couple of hours we spent some time taking it all in and taking photos. This one couple saw us with cameras and asked us to take their photo right on the rim of the canyon. We gladly said yes and Nick took a shot or two before showing the photos to them. The guy said he loved them but wanted one more, he handed the phone back to nick and walked over to his girlfriend and got on his knee and asked her to marry him. I realized what was happening pretty fast so I grabbed my camera and snapped a few photos as well. It was a special moment.
We found a spot to sleep for the night and woke up early to get on the road again. The original plan was to go to Zion National Park but we decided to keep heading west and make it to LA. We got a hotel in LA also, because we thought it was probably time for a shower. We spent some time walking down Venice beach and Santa Monica Pier which I dont have very many photos of because I left my memory card at the hotel. We watched the sun slowly creep behind the horizon. It was all fun until both of our phones died and we had no way to get an uber back to the hotel and a taxi would have been way to expensive but after some time we figured it out and made it back in one piece.
One can only take so much of LA traffic so the next morning we hopped back in the car and headed towards Yosemite National park. That will have a whole blog post to itself because I am in love with that place. Again, Thanks for reading my scrambled thoughts!
