This week marked the first time I ever laid eyes on the Grand Canyon, courtesy of a bus trip from Las Vegas and a new freelancing gig with Viator. The Canyon is stunning — that goes without saying. But this trip solidified for me the type of traveler I’m becoming. It’s no longer enough for me to simply sightsee and look at something idly. When I looked down into the great trenches formed by the Colorado River, all I could think was how I wanted to be climbing or hiking or rafting all over it. But for now I’m so grateful I got a little taste of what is to come.
As I write this I am back in the arctic tundra that is Upstate New York. Let’s not talk about it.
My tour included a quick stop at the engineering marvel that is The Hoover Dam.
Traveling alone means getting a little creative with self portraits. The photo on the right reminds me of one of the pictures in Photo of the Week 45!
