Our Grand Canyon Adventure + The Anything and Everything Blog Hop!

Monday, July 8, 2013

This past 4th of July weekend, my Husband and I set out to see The Grand Canyon. It's only 8 hours away from Los Angeles, and I've driven near it at least 5 times... so why have I never been?!? So, we decided to use our extended weekend, for a road trip!

Even looking back through our photos, it is still hard to wrap my brain around! When we first walked up to the South Rim, the haze made it almost resemble an ocean. It was so unreal and felt like I was looking at a painting. We spent an entire day walking/driving around the rim. On our way back to Flagstaff, we took the scenic route around the Little Colorado River, and it was so much cooler than driving in through Williams. If you're heading that way, I suggest taking the 89 to the 64 instead of taking the 180. Another perk to taking the back way is that it's Navajo country and there are street vendors all along the Highway. I picked up a could pieces of artisan jewelry!

P.S. It was hot and raining, thus my very messy hair!


As I mentioned above, we stayed in Flagstaff. We initially wanted to go to The Grand Canyon and Sedona, but The Grand Canyon was enough for one vacation! We did walk around Flagstaff, and eat at some really yummy restaurants! If you're ever in Flagstaff, you have to eat at Oregano's, it's some of the best Italian food I've ever had!! All the images above are from walking around downtown, I'm quite obsessed with the alleyways there!

Now, onto the Blog Hop! If you're new to this hop, it's really simple. There is a very short list of directions below, and you can basically link up anything (and everything) you've been working on lately! Whether it's your new favorite recipe, the skirt you just scored on clearance, or your summer playlist, share it all! Also, every week I will be featuring a blogger from the previous week's link-up (You are making it so hard to choose just one!!). Be sure to check out our featured blogger, along with a couple other blog hoppers too!!


This week's Blogger is Laura from Walking in Memphis in High Heels! As I was scrolling through all the bloggers from last week's link up, I immediately noticed Laura's amazing stripe skirt! I am crazy about this entire 4th of July look she put together! I also just found Laura host's a blog hop as well! Each week she proposes a new "Trend" and bloggers can link up their own version of the "Trend Spin." It's such a clever way to engage readers and give other bloggers inspiration! When you stop by Walking in Memphis in High Heels, be sure to wish Laura a happy 30th Birthday too!!
