This year I took a two week solo trip to visit my parents and sister. The trip started off with a short two day stop in Florida where I got to see of one of my best friends and some of my favorite cousins. Then I flew out to Colorado and spent a week at my parents house. I did some sewing with my Mom, fishing with Dad, ate lots of good food, and just enjoyed being with them. We then started making our way to our final destination of Las Vegas which is about 7 hours away from my parents place. We stopped at Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon, and The Grand Canyon on our way. It was an incredibly scenic, beautiful drive. I hadn't spend much time out west before this trip and seeing this diverse, desert landscape, so uniquely different from was I am accustomed to in The States, was truly breathtaking.
