While our oldest son Michael was off in France with some of his classmates, the three of us (Don, Marina, and David) headed off into the desert. I took my GPS with me, and here is a map showing the route we traveled:
Our trip took us to four National Parks: Arches, the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, and Carlsbad Caverns, as well as a two day layover in Albuquerque.
Along the way, David and I took numerous pictures, some of which will be shown here.
