Canyon Trip

2.8 mile hike to the bristlecone pines at Great Basin.
Grand Canyon.
About two weeks ago my family and I returned from a twelve-day trip in the western United States. As a family we dubbed this trip our “CT2” or “Canyon Trip.” It's CT2 since last year we visited Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and studied evidence for the flood and creation and called that our “Creation Trip” or “CT” so we just had to start a tradition. LOL.
   On this year's trip we visited Great Basin National Park in Nevada, Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona, and Zion Canyon National Park back in Utah again. We camped in a tent every night except for three, when we stayed in hotels. We had some real quality time as a family. I especially enjoyed all the time around the campfire talking. We covered about 2,325 miles in all. The new states for me that we went through were Utah and Arizona. Here are a few pictures to introduce you to our trip but I will try to post more in future posts about our trip!
Bryce Canyon National Park.

Beautiful Bryce Canyon!

    1. Thanks so much, Dad! I am so blessed to have been born into this family! I couldn't have dreamed up better parents! Thank you for "training me up in the ways I should go, so that when I am old I will not depart from it"!

  2. That is so awesome! I knew your mom and dad wanted to take you girls on this trip, but nobody told me that you were actually going. I wish I had known, so I could have been praying! But God took care of you and blessed you anyway. Thanks for sharing the photos and a bit of your adventure!

    1. It was a truly inspiring trip—to stand "on the edge of the world" where if there was no railing you'd fall right off! All these places were so new to me. Pictures do them all, but especially not the Grand Canyon, no justice!

  6. I love your pictures! 2 years ago two of my sisters, my brother, my mom, and my aunt, and me of course, went to Bryce Canyon and Zion Canyon on our way to Colorado for my cousins wedding.
