so after calling christine last minute saturday to drive me to the airport - like at midnight - i managed a fitful MAYBE 2 hours sleep before having to get up at 3am. we made it to the airport by 4:30 and after a nasty line-up at customs, i was on my way to sedona and my latest big adventure! jd picked me up in pheonix, and we then collected 2 more of our cohorts - steve and johnny m. after a so-so lunch at denny's, we went back to the airport and grabbed chris.
and THIS is where we stayed in sedona! nice condo jd . . .
johnny m, jd and steve . . .
just had to grab a shot of this . . .
we went for a short run sunday afternoon to stretch out the legs. did around 1:15 at a place called bell rock. man it sure was a lot hotter than we were used to!!
on monday we packed up our shit and headed to flagstaff and eventually the grand canyon! this is one of the places we stopped at along the way.
me and jd . . .
first glimpse of the canyon . . .
HOLY KRAP !
looking down the south kaibab trail . . .
no mules on the trail but avoided tons of mule krap . . .
okay - so we're going over THERE . . .
chris, me and johnny m . . .
ahahahaha! the BEST sign ever . . .
and this was the sky just as we were leaving . . .
anyways, had some dinner, packed up our stuff and went to bed early in anticipation of a 'really big day' . . .
