Route 66: Roadtripping on point.

YES.
yes I am at the famous Hackberry Route 66 shop!
Crazy to think this road takes you from LA to Chicago...unbelievable right?
This world is full of nutty happenings. 

My favorite thing on this stop was the tourist wall which cases dollar bills, pesos, yen, turkishollars( turkish dollars), and all sorts of other currency from around the world!!!
Visitors get to pinpoint where they're visiting from, and although there were
many american buckaroos, there were plenty of other dollars from all sorts of different 
countries!!!!!! I saw one from turkey, england, china, Japan, Egypt, and more!!

Well fellow readers,
Im completely exhausted and all i want to do is catch some Z's 
so I'll continue on this later!

Rainbow Goodies!!!


On our way out of the canyon we got to watch lightning all across the grand canyon sky, 
the patchy rainspots looked surreal, very magical.
After the rain came a rainbow, outstretched over the sleeping giant.
I cant even handle all the greatness of this trip. I mean seriously.
WHAT BETTER PLACE TO SEE AN OUTSTRETCHED RAINBOW?!
Im feeling more humbled every passing minute, transformed, 
at peace, renewed. All these positive vibes.
The best things in life really are free.

Thunder...LIGHTNING!!

Our death hike to South Kaibab Trail!!
An 11 mile hike, storm started setting in while we hiked it!
So it was stinkin hot on our way down the canyon but raining by the time we had to make our way out! There was an old mr. hiking the trail, an instructor aparently, who at one point passed us by and said, " you gals need to turn around, storms coming in 
and you can catch hypothermia with the weather thats a'brewin'"

well....we waited for him to leave and said to ourselves
"umm.......i REALLY doubt things'll get so rough we'll get hypothermia out here"
Afterall it was just starting to sprinkle! 
BUT THENNNNNN....
LIGHTNING!!!!!!! and thunder that echoed throughout the canyon...it was insane,
the sound of thunder echoing throughout the grand canyon, 
I CANT EVEN EXPLAIN HOW GRAND THAT WAS.
It went down in Raych history,
the day I fell in love with lightning, and the sound of thunder.


subtracting my everyday city life routine and replacing it with this piece of mother nature
was the best decision i've made in quite a while.

Life is good. No....Life is REEEEEEal good.
