One month into my journey: the Grand Canyon!


As of today, it has been one month since I began my epic year-long journey, from my comfortable spot of the past 15 years in SE Portland. And wow, has it been a blast so far! I had always assumed I would love this trip, but I think it’s safe to say my experiences have surpassed my expectations so far. I am loving this lifestyle!

Exhibit A: Today I got to see the Grand Canyon!

What a spectacular place.

I don’t really have much to write about it (and there’s no internet in Flagstaff on many Sunday nights, apparently, including this one, so I’ll be posting this tomorrow) so I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves, even though they absolutely cannot do it justice.

A few of the photos are an attempt to capture some of the beautiful trees (mostly ponderosa pines, and a few gloriously autumnal aspens) from the drive back to my Servas host family’s place in Flagstaff.

We also hit up the farmers’ market this morning, before the canyon. Check out those gourds!

Yes. I am living the life I love right now.

Tomorrow: Oak Creek Village, just south of Sedona. I hear the ride should be gorgeous; I’m looking forward to it!
