Grand Canyon Road Trip

Warning: A horrific number of pictures ahead!

Aaaaaand we’re off!

A drive-thru weed dispensary called Tumbleweeds. I mean...god damn, Colorad, you’re so adorable!

We spent the night at Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge! The main pool is the size of a football field and is around 90F. The separate smaller pool is 104F.

Here’s a much more impressive photo that I’ve blatantly stolen from the website!

We definitely want to return for a long weekend sometime. Extra especially in the winter so we can soak in super hot water while surrounded by snow.

We finally arrived at Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel, a super pretty hotel that’s an hours drive from the Canyon. The reason we chose them is because they offer a two hour train ride to the canyon and Matt loves trains. The morning of our ride we woke up and, surprise…SNOW!!

“Look majestic!”

58 miles out of the way and so completely worth it. I miss, like, five things about California and this is definitely one of them.

We went to The Meteor Crater Interactive Discovery Center.

"The world’s best preserved meteorite impact site on Earth. The breath-taking result of a collision between an asteroid traveling 26,000 miles per hour and planet Earth approximately 50,000 years ago."

For scale, look at the teeeeeeny tiiiiiiny people on your bottom right.

"On July 31, 1999, some of (Eugene Shoemaker's) ashes were carried to the Moon by the Lunar Prospector space probe in a capsule designed by Carolyn Porco.  He is the only person whose ashes have been buried on any celestial body outside Earth."

The End!
