We headed out for our National Park road trip on the Thursday before Thanksgiving. Our first night we staying in Kingman and then drove along the old historic Route 66. We enjoyed seeing all the old cars and old style gas stations along the way that look like they were frozen in time.

A first look at the canyon took our breath away! We walked along the rim trail... with lots of reminders to "stay back from the edge!"

Our canyoneering excursion planned for this morning got postponed because of the bad weather... the snow is starting to come down more heavily. So instead we are heading into Zion National Park.
