Better than Grand Canyon

Posted in Road Trip by Jacqueline Iannacone on June 20, 2010

Point blank, if you haven’t been you haven’t lived… well maybe that’s exaggerating a bit. The best way to write about this wonder is to not write about it at all and just show you… hopefully these photos will do most of the writing for me…

Toward the end of the night Clare and I decided to chase the sun as it set, the view was amazing… the light was even better.  Being here I couldn’t resist taking a self portrait…

Grand Canyon

One of the best parts about the Grand Canyon experience is the old tyme decor, dirt roads and transportation around the park.  I don’t think anyone passed this train without at least being tempted to snap a photograph…

The couple of nights we camped at the Grand Canyon were memorable to say the least… Clare and I had the chance to eat (somewhat) good food, share a bottle of wine, talk about life, art, family and more. We touched on how the important things in life relate to one another and how we can influence and project what we feel is needed in the art world to the art world and to the world. We talked about how much we didn’t want to camp anymore (at this point it had been 5 consecutive nights), what we’d hope for in the next 4 weeks… about who we’re and weren’t going home to and how we both can become better. It was fantastic, it was needed and it was exactly what the doctor ordered.

The next morning we packed our things and headed off to sin city… the ride there was a combination of nerves, expectation and excitement… Would we love it? Would we hate it? Are the shows really as good as everyone hypes them to be?

    Hey Baby, Great shots of the Canyon. Best way I can describe it is awe inspiring. You are looking at it but cannot compute in your mind the enormity of it.
    Five days camping? Yikes! Makes couch surfing seem like luxury quarters. Next stop, Vegas. What ever happens in Vegas better not stay in Vegas.Have fun and stay safe. Howdy to Clare. Love you. Dad

    Hi Jackie,
    I am glad you are having such a great time. It is an experience you will never forget. Your pictures are very good. Beautiful and visually inviting. Did you win in Vegas? I was a little shocked to go from the raw natural environment of the Gand Canyon to the man made extravaganza of Las Vegas. I wondered if you and Clare had the same reaction? Stay safe and have more fun.
    Love, Aunt Janet
