n Thursday April 8, Abbie and I left on our little adventure to Arizona! We went to visit my parents who live there during the coldest winter months. It was Abbie's first time to fly.... such fun to experience something new with her!
My parents met us at the airport in Phoenix, then we left to drive north to the Grand Canyon. I have been there before, but it never ceases to totally amaze me. Photos simply can't do the Grand Canyon justice. After spending the night there in the Grand Canyon village, we awoke to this incredible vista:
It totally causes me to stand in awe of my Precious Savior, the Creator God.
And I am, most certainly not the only one so inspired by His creation.
For some reason I found myself drawn to old weathered trees on this trip.
Such things those trees must have "seen!"
We hung around the Grand Canyon all day, then headed up to Page, AZ to get ready for our photographic tour of "Canyon X" which was scheduled for the next day. Page is home to Lake Powell... I believe it is the largest man-made lake in the United States. Before eating dinner we did a little exploring there.
The terrain there was fascinating.
Loved the low angle of the setting sun. We had fun with the shadows. Here are my father and I:
My father and Abbie paused a minute for a captured moment in time....
We said good bye to a fabulous first day of our Arizona adventure....
Next up: some photos that appear to be from another planet of slot Canyon "X" and from the Chiricahua national park, some rock formations that you won't believe.
