The Grand Canyon!

So instead of stopping in Williams like I originally planned, I decided to continue to the closer hotels just outside the park entrance. I’ll save me an hour and half tomorrow driving, which will be nice. Then I can spend more time looking and walking around.

So here’s what I did so far on my journey.

I left town midday on Monday, after having breakfast with the Cooks, saying good bye to the office again, getting my car washed, and getting a replacement nalgene bottle. I drove and drove and drove some more, but then I realized that I had to drive quite a way further in the over all scheme of my trip, so why should I just put up with having my front wheels unbalanced? So I took a detour in Fresno to Big O tires and said “What the hay,” and got four new tires.

Then I remember getting tires is like being locked in prison for an hour half and then paying almost four hundred dollars to get out. Sure your car rides like a dream but was it really worth it? I guess so, since I did need new tires and Walmart made me sign something saying that they aren’t responsible if I die from lack of tread when they changed my oil on Saturday.

Then it was back on the road again and spent the night in Bakersfield.

Today I woke up and was on the road and here are some pictures:

Snow

SNOW! At the Grand Canyon there’s more snow than at home. It’s crazy and kind of refreshing.

Well, I’m off to find some food to eat. Later!
