Chick Trip 2002

July 4th

Grand Canyon North Rim, Arizona to Albuquerque, New Mexico

 

Happy Fourth of July!  I got up early and walked around the rim of the Canyon just to get a look at it in the morning. See how the sun shines on the canyon walls so rich in color?  This is definitely the coolest place I have ever been!

 

We checked out and headed East.  How depressing.  But, I think we were both in the mood to head home. Lela missed Vic and I missed Eric and we were getting on each other's nerves a bit too.  It just goes to show you that long trips do take it out of you, even when you are with somebody you get along with as famously as Lela and I do.

This evening we stayed in  Albuquerque, Mew Mexico, in an EconoLodge on Central Avenue and the Interstate.  Cheap - DISGUSTING!  We drove around looking for a place to eat, but being that it was the 4th, there was no place open.  We ended up in the hotel, eating out of the cooler.  We had plenty, so that was no problem.  We watched the fireworks on TV and planned our route for tomorrow.
