On the Way to the Wedding Roadtrip: Reports From Jim — Bryce Canyons, A Long and Beautiful Diversion

Send to Kindle

Our road trip across the country on the way to our daughter’s wedding has begun!

Wide Open Skies, Mountains and Canyons

Day 10 – July 24, 2012

The Fairfield had a good breakfast, one we could actually eat.  We asked and received a late check out (noon) so Kelly could get some work done. She didn’t make it so I shooed her out of the room and into the lobby so we could make our noon checkout, with 30 seconds to spare.

While we have been early risers we have not been early departers, many times we start traveling after 10 am and some times after noon, such as today.  As I look back I can’t figure out what we did with those mornings.… Read the rest
