Go West - Pacific Time Zone Baby!

We woke up early on Saturday morning in hopes of good weather so that we could see the sunrise over the Grand Canyon. No such luck. It was snowing and the view of the canyon was completely covered.

The view at Yavapai Point @ sunrise - we forgot to ask the King of Wishful Thinking for a better view 
Another view from Yavapai Point - yup, no sunrise here
Just to give you a sense of the railing and the canyon
It started snowing harder as I set up the tripod - Paul was not happy that I wanted to retake the first shot

With nothing to really see, we headed to Las Vegas to see my sister and her family with a few stops along the way.

Finally made it to the Pacific Time Zone

  1. I laughed out loud (while on a conference call) at "Where's Megatron?". I love the snowy pics -- sorry about the sunrise but it was gorgeous nonetheless!

    1. Anne - I'm so glad that I can make you laugh while on a conference call (I know how those can be) and more importantly, that you got my reference! : )

  2. Wow! You have some amazing views! I wish I could see that. But as the old saying goes, pictures tell a thousand words. (make that a million words. You can never have too many words.)
