|Day #2 (there's a loop through the Grand Canyon behind the 'B' bubble)|
I was expecting to be underwhelmed by the Grand Canyon. Let's be honest, I'm not the biggest outdoors person. Plus, anything that is so highly regarded by everyone has to be viewed with some semblance of an unimpressed eye. However, it was honestly pretty cool. We were allowed to walk Angel along the rim with us. People were climbing everywhere, which was kind of surprising. I thought there would be rails and viewing platforms everywhere. There weren't many, and Annie was playing protective mom in not letting me play around.
|Ok, there were some rails, but they weren't very restrictive.|
We drove around the south rim until sunset, then we rushed back to the Bdubs in Flagstaff for the Sugar Bowl. Yes, Bdubs #2 for dinner. Worth it, just to see Twinkly Eyes. For those unfamiliar with Twinkly Eyes, picture wholesome perfection in a tall, blond, blue-eyed male. His name would be Twinkly Eyes. He had the unfortunate circumstance of standing next to me in band for an entire year, and I think I hit on him daily. He's too nice to say anything about it. And he is exactly the same now, 5 years since the last time I saw him. Oh yeah, Michigan won, too, but it wasn't the most spectacular of football games during that 24-hour span. It felt pretty damn good to win a BCS game, though! ("Sparty tears taste like Sugar!")
Bdubs is a primary source of nutrition at this point,
