Why We Were There!
In the summer of 2000 we took a three week family driving trip across the southwest United States to show our then 14 year old son some history and geography. Being geography majors in college we were particularly upset that the school system we were employed by had decided to drop American geography from almost all its curriculum, particularly in the grade our son had just completed so OFF WE WENT ON A MISSION!
One of our major stops was the Grand Canyon. We spent time driving and hiking along short rim trails but as you can guess the heat was almost unbearable! I had hoped to score a mule trip down into the Canyon but no luck. Also, my favorite camera decided to basically fail me most of the trip and we really could not get many good distance shots. Oh to have a time capsule and go back with a DSLR to those trips and days!
So please excuse the lack of photo info, details and especially the quality; enjoy this album as just a trip back in time.
