Many friends and acquaintances tell me that they dislike long drives. On the other hand, I totally enjoy long drives, especially the cross-country variety that cover hundreds or even thousands of miles and span several days.
For my latest road trip I ferried Mom’s car from Grand Rapids to her Winter home in the Phoenix area.
I asked my 6 year old grandson to be my traveling companion, promising to visit a couple of “fun places” along the way. Logan and I packed our bags, hopped into the car and headed West for our week-long journey.
Here’s a photo essay of the places that we visited.
Arches National Park
Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park
Grand Canyon National Park
Antelope Canyon Navajo Park
Phoenix and the Flight Home

What a nice getaway. We delivered Mom’s car to Arizona one day before she arrived from Grand Rapids. But just as importantly I was able to spend uninterrupted time with Logan and record it on film.
