Stunning place it is! Truly takes your breath away!
If you've never stood on the rim and viewed it with your own two eyes, no photo, or written description can really 'splain the magnificence of it.
It was in April of 1981 that we headed out West, hooked up with some great friends living in ABQ, and took a "road trip" to remember.
Dean (#1 Son) was 7 months old. Let me give you young parents a tip...don't take a 7 month old on a long trip if you can help it.
But, we did. And, we lived to tell the story.
For those of y'all that do not believe that I was once a massive tub o' lard, married to a hot, sexy chick...
Nyuk! And, that was before I got REALLY fat!!!
(Yep! That really is me at age 21).
Oh, yeah! The sexy chick at The Grand Canyon!
Yeah...I've been going through years of files, digital photos, and scanned photos trying to clean out all the old junk that I really don't want to keep.
I think I'll hang on to these...
(BTW...50 extra blog points to the first person that can name which sports team I WAS a fan of back in them days. There's a clue in the pitchers).
