Turning A Corner

It is fun to reminisce about the lavish family vacations we have taken over the past 10 years or so. We have been to Japan, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Russia, Estonia, Finland, the Caribbean, England, Scotland, Italy, Turkey and Greece and we have enjoyed all of them. We also have fond memories of some wonderful US destinations like Las Vegas, Santa Barbara, Alaska and Hawaii.

But now we have turned a corner. We have officially entered "college mode". We are going to have to, temporarily--hopefully, suspend lavish vacations to exotic locations. All is not lost, however, as we will now incorporate Joey's favorite travel accessories into our upcoming vacation plans: backpacks, hiking boots, sleeping bags, compasses, maps, tents and freeze dried food--NO!!! Just kidding about the freeze dried food thing. That is not going to happen.

One of the really nice things about living in America is... this country is filled with awesome State Parks, forested hiking trails, gorgeous scenery and lovely campgrounds. I am thinking about a road trip that includes the Grand Canyon, Utah and Yellowstone.

Maybe every few days we will throw in a classy motel with a real bed and a real shower... maybe. I haven't figured all that out yet.

We want to redo our Grand Canyon/Mt. Zion trip. Mainly the Mt. Zion part. That place is gorgeous and we barley had any time there!
