That's a Really Big Hole

This weekend I did something I had never done before... I went to the Grand Canyon. I can't claim that it was my idea. The boyfriend was trying to plan a weekend, to get some much needed relationship r&r. His first choice was the haunted hotel in Jerome, but it was booked. We are gonna have to try that one again sometime. He decided on Friday that it would be the Canyon. Bright and early on Saturday morning, we made the 3 hour drive.
Let me just tell you... even in person it doesn't look real. It was still cold enough in the morning that there was a little frost/fog in the air. By the afternoon, it was beautiful. Totally unreal, and had we had the energy we would have stayed for the sunset. But that will be another time. We have already decided to train to do some hiking there. With the impromptu nature of our trip, neither of us had fully prepared ourselves for anything too crazy with the hiking. Our first training session will be this weekend on South Mountain.

Aren't we cute?!?!
