Knittin' mittens for ma kittens!

sick days are for yardwork

Taking a break from raking our beast of a backyard. But at least it's at my employer's expense!

It occurred to me that I never posted any pictures of my trip to Arizona this past November. I went with a good friend that I met a few years ago in Japan, and this is our second trip together. (The first was last November, when I visited her in London.) We decided to go someplace neither of us had been, so we picked the Grand Canyon. We drove out of Las Vegas (and not a minute too soon...that place is the PITS) and into Arizona, down Route 66.

We stayed in a cute little town called Williams, at a restored brothel-turned-bed and bakery.

We saw the Grand Canyon, where some mountain goats put on a show for us.

And I put on a show at Meteor Crater, quite possibly the windiest spot on earth that I've experienced so far.

It was a great trip. Edited to add: I uploaded a bunch more pictures of the trip to my flickr page. Click one of the photos above to see the rest.

  • Beautiful pics! Looks like so much fun!

    Oh, btw, you dropped a yarn needle in the couch at Java Monkey. No worries, I've got it in my purse.
