Grand Canyon – RV Road Trip: Six States in Three Weeks Series

How do you describe the Grand Canyon?  For me, it was the colors.  Red. Blue. Gold. Green.  It was the texture and light.  It was simply majestic.  But it was also incomprehensible and complicated.  All these adjectives and more fill my mind’s eye when I remember the Grand Canyon.

We drove from Los Angeles mostly on Interstate 40 and it was a long day.  Almost 500 miles and the worst part, I was car sick for most of it.  Blah!  But we made it to Trailer Village on the south rim of the Grand Canyon.  It was funny driving up the South Entrance Road.  I kept waiting to see the canyon out my window.  Little did I know, the Grand Canyon was surrounded by a forest, the Kaibab National Forest and trees were everywhere.

The RV Road Trip that Changed My Life

Five people.  192 square feet.  Three weeks.  This is the story of how a road trip changed my life.  My family and I left behind our routines on March 30, 2013 to drive through six states.  I can still feel the butterflies in my stomach as we were pulling away from our house.  Our goal was to spend time together, reconnect, see new places, and just have fun together.  It was the best trip of our lives!

Trip Overview

Our trip focused mostly on California, Arizona, and Utah.  In California, we spent time in Big Sur, Sequoia National Park and Disneyland.  Arizona was all about the Grand Canyon.  And in Utah, we stayed in Moab to visit Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse State Park.
