Grand Canyon

Ivan and I went to breakfast at Brandy’s on February 16, 2010.  It was featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins  and Dives.  We had a lovely meal of eggs brandy (like eggs benedict except without the bacon) and trout and eggs.

We started driving to Grand Canyon.  Ivan wanted to see Grand Canyon.  It was my second visit.  I noticed Bedrock City in Valle, Arizona.  I went there as a kid  with my family.  Ivan thought we should go in since it was only $4 per person since it’s off season.  It’s a recreation of The Flintstones Bedrock City.  It’s pretty kewl.  The train ride wasn’t functional and it was empty.  I rode down the slide. 


We checked everything out like Fred’s house. 

We set again towards Grand Canyon.  We arrived at the Visitor’s Center.  We walked to see the amazing view.  We hiked a little bit.  The canyon is massive and really breathtaking.


We drove to Grandview Point which is the highest point at the Grand Canyon.  Then, we drove to Desert View Watch Tower.  We saw a nice sunset there. 

We drove back to Isaac and Marguerite’s house.  They cooked us a tasty dinner.  Holly and Josh (the British couple we met the night before) came over.  Holly really wanted to get hypnotized.

Ivan hypnotized Holly and it was very entertaining.


Off to Arizona

On February 15, 2010, Ivan and I started off on our road trip of America.  We left at 2:30 pm from Las Vegas headed to our first stop of Flagstaff, Arizona.  We were going pretty well until we came closer to Hoover Dam.  There was lots of traffic and it took us 50 minutes to get through.  I think it was the construction and slow pace drivers go since they want to get a glimpse of the dam.

We stopped at Mr D’z for a snack.


Ivan really wanted to take Route 66 in Arizona but we were running too late.  We would do it on our way back. 

It started getting cold outside.  I noticed snow on a building.  I asked Ivan if it was real snow.  He said It must be.  I didn’t expect Flagstaff to be so cold.

We arrived in Flagstaff in 5 hours.  Isaac and Marguerite, the couchsurfers we were staying with, invited us to their friend Scott’s house for dinner.  There was a British couple named Holly and Rick there that we wanted to host in Las Vegas but couldn’t since we’d be on our trip.  The dinner was nice and we all chatted for awhile.
