Seeking “Phantom”

Day 5: From the Grand Canyon we drive North to Page, AZ ( 1-1/2 hour) where we pray that weather is cooperative, even though there isn’t a cloud in the sky.

Up in Page there are slot canyons known as Antelope Canyon (Upper & Lower)-a place I discussed in New Mexico/Arizona, when we got rained out and couldn’t tour any of the canyons.

Why am I here? Because I’m chasing my own “Phantom.” If you are not aware, Photographer and Artist Peter Lik sold one of his photographs of the famous slot canyons for $6.5 Million. Phantom is known to the be the most expensive photo in the world. The canyons are robust in color and smooth in texture, they’re  any artists’ ideal setting. All I seek is to see it myself and hope to have a photo I can enjoy!

The Biggest Hole on Earth (video heavy)

You might think that after visiting Meteor Crater, that seeing a giant hole in the earth is not so grand after all…

You would be so wrong!

After many years and one other attempt to try and see the Grand Canyon, today would finally be the day!

I expected… I don’t know what exactly I expected other than a large wavy hole in the earth created by a river and wind and so on. What I didn’t expect, was to be overwhelmed by it all. Taking in such a massive phenomenon really blew my mind.

Here is how I spent 24 hours at the Grand Canyon (South Rim)

Crossing state lines

If you’ve ever been to Texas, then you know how big it really is…

Road trips typically aren’t so terrible. Crossing one state line to the next can range from 4-8 hours (depending on the state). Here in Texas, crossing to state lines can be an all day event {if you’re going across the entire state}.

On my latest adventures:  Road Trip Recap. Our journey begins in Houston, Texas, where we spend our entire first day of the trip; below lies the arduous travels to the first destination. Continue reading “Crossing state lines”

First Timer’s Guide to RV Travel

Road Trips are not a thing of the past. In fact, it’s becoming trendy again. You’ve seen the show “Tiny House,” right?  We’re all looking for a way to be comfortable when we travel whether it’s buying a pop up and toting it behind the Jeep or buying an old school bus/van and doing a complete rehaul on the interior to make it feel more like a home on wheels.

Your next best option is renting an RV.

Here are 7 things you should know before taking your first RV trip (because I know you want to travel! and why not take a road trip?): Continue reading “First Timer’s Guide to RV Travel”

New Mexico/ Arizona

I need to catch you back up because we left off on Utah. Our plans of leaving in March just so happened to be cancelled due to weather conditions in the North, preventing us from being able to visit Yellowstone {like we discussed in Wyoming back in 2016}. We were able to reschedule our trip without penalty and got reimbursed for the one-way tickets for flights.

So, here we are… Im rounding back again before we actually head off in May (weather will be much better). Instead of leaving from Montana and driving down back to Texas, our adventure will begin backwards from Texas to Montana. Though I am not looking forward to the lengthy drive out of Texas; I can look forward to visiting New Mexico and Arizona {which I fell in love with back in 2015, when Brad took me to Sedona for our Anniversary}.
