I'm writing to give a current update about my road trip (sorry, no pics!). Right now I'm writing from Zion National Park, my 5th National Park of this trip! I'm behind on posting entries because I can't post pictures without hi speed internet and yet again tonight I don't have it. I'm mainly writing to say that I'm headed home this coming weekend. I'll be flying home overnight Friday night, arriving at Bradley International Airport at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday. I'm shipping my things home via the U.S. Post Office. I decided to forego buying cowboy boots and a winter coat, both of which I hoped to purchase on this trip, so that I can pay to ship my things home. I will be donating a number of items to the owners of the camper I'm currently renting (which I love, by the way - no breakdowns!!). It just doesn't make sense for me to pay to ship some of the things I brought (like food containers - I brought WAY too many of those, I'm not sure what I was thinking...)
The last blog post was from Yellowstone which was last Tuesday. The next day Liz and I went to Grand Tetons NP, then she flew home from Jackson Hole Airport and I spent the day hanging around there (most of which was in a co-working space using their internet to update my blog!). I drove from there to Utah where I passed by Bear Lake and took some amazing pictures, then visited my friend Heather on the campus of Utah State University. From there I went to Bryce Canyon where I spent two days (Friday and Saturday). As I said to Liz, it was otherworldly - but not in the way that it looks as if it's another planet like Yellowstone does, there is something sort of magical about that place. And today I'm at Zion. What is amazing, but Bryce is a hard act to follow! If I were a rock climber (which I am NOT) I would definitely come to Zion for that!
I'm going to the Grand Canyon tomorrow and Tuesday, which was not originally on my agenda. However, I have to pass through there to return the camper, so it just makes sense! Then I'm going to go to Sedona, which is sort of on the way to Avondale, where I will return the camper on Friday. Avondale is only about 20 minutes from the Phoenix Airport, which is incredibly lucky for me (thanks God!).
I hope to get some more blog entries done this week, but that all depends on the internet I have available at my future campgrounds. If that doesn't happen, I'll have to finish them up once I get home. For now - adventure awaits!
