I’ve mentioned a few times that we’re moving to the east coast this summer, and it’s finally happening! We left Vegas this morning to start our four-day drive to Philadelphia. I’m typing this entry from Grand Junction, Colorado!

It was a good drive today. Uneventful, but good. We had music on blast while driving through the canyons in Utah with clear skies above us. I’m always amazed at the sight of canyons. Those things have been around long before we came to be, shaped by thousands of years of weathering and erosion, and they’re absolutely gorgeous. That right there, that is nature.

This picture is actually taken in Red Rock Canyon in Vegas. I couldn’t take a good one of the ones in Utah because we didn’t want to stop. So here’s a generic canyon picture!

I’m going to miss driving out and hiking through canyons. I’ve always felt invigorated after walking through Red Rock, and I don’t know when I’ll get to do that again. Of course, I’m excited to be moving back to a big city, and I’ve always told people I’m a city girl, but I’m just as well a desert rat.


  1. I hope it all goes really well on the move! :D You should really excited so that is a wonderful thing.

    You can always return at some point and do some wondering and exploring if you want to.

  2. It’s awesome that you’re taking some time to explore while traveling to the east! The move sounds crazy with it being a 4 day drive! The canyon looks so tall and scary to fall on XD. Even though you won’t be around the canyons anymore, it’s not going to be the last time you see them, right right? :D
