Almost 5,000 miles, through nine states, over the course of 11 days…that was our vacation through Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, California, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma.
Along the way we visited such places as the Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, Bedrock City, Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert, the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial and the Oklahoma City Zoo; and also such diverse places as Jerome, AZ (which sits on the side of a mountain), Wolf Creek Pass (where there was snow at 10,000 feet and the temp was 48° with howling 50 mph winds); and, of course, a long travel path down ol’ Route 66 (which in some parts was even dirt).
So many pictures…so many memories. We are exhausted but thankful to the Lord for the finances, the opportunity, and also the wherewithal to go about this wonderful journey into the past.
Here are a few of many pictures we’ll be sharing over the course of the next few weeks:
This was at the Grand Canyon; Jeannie’s brother Jerry is on the left and his daughter Angellica is at front left.
Jeannie and I gazing at God’s beauty via a rock outcropping at the Canyon.
Yes, here I am out on a ledge at the Canyon. It was 4,000 feet to the bottom from here. What a view!!
The beginning of Route 66 in Arizona. Desert and heat ruled the day (over 105°).
That’s some of the pics for now. I’ll be back with more later on!
Blessings to all!
