The air conditioning went out in the pickup on the first day so we had to pretend that it was back when we got married so we would not have had air conditioning. It was in the high 90’s and low l00’s through all of the south, so the first week was a bit uncomfortable. After we turned north there were temps as low as 37 degrees so we were much more comfortable.
Here is a picture of our route drawn out on a map of the US.
The route is outlined in green. It was roughly a big circle and covered approximately 5,000 miles. There was a bit of a change at the bottom when we decided to go to Carlsbad Caverns.
We belong to AAA so had them help us lay out the route. They provided a book with step-by-step directions called a Trip Tik.
On Saturday, May 19, we drove to Salt Lake City and spent the night. On Sunday, we drove to Zion National Park, went through Zion Canyon and drove through the park to the south entrance.
The first two are of Zion.
The next two are at the north rim of the Grand Canyon. One is to show the width there and the second one is to show the depth.
Here are two views of the south rim of the Grand Canyon. These were all taken from the shuttle bus that takes you to 9 different viewpoints of the canyon.
I will have a couple more reports of the trip, but will be back to posting recipes tomorrow.
