Steele, Sahara, and I went to the Grand Canyon on our way back to the South in late April, and I'm finally sharing it about! High fives!
We were leaving Zion and splitting out from the guys that had become our traveling pack over the few weeks prior. I was having a bit of a hard time with the transition, especially because my seasonal job had not come to complete fruition at that time. Luckily, my guy was incredibly thoughtful and booked the S tribe a couple days at a South Rim Cabin. We really enjoyed our stay and was the perfect transition back to the South!
We decided to ride the shuttle to Hermit's Rest and walk along the rim in that area. This photo makes my heart so happy - this past winter a bunch of us worked on teaching Steele about the desert and how fragile it can be (along with Rick our botanist friend teaching him the scientific names to flowers!). So along our stroll, Steele saw a flower and asked to look at it. He put his hands behind his back so he wouldn't pick it (without any prior prompting) and looked at it for quite a while.
On the way out Steele fell asleep and I drove along Desert View Drive to stop and watch the rain and fog come over the canyon. Perfect ending to our four months on the road!
