We couldn’t just drive straight to Tucson for spring break. For one thing, there aren’t any direct ways to get there from here unless you are a bird (which I am not).
This particular family isn’t all that fond of long days in the car, and since flying wasn’t an option, we decided to spice up the travel with a few places of interest along the way. Our first reach into the spice cupboard took us to Bryce Canyon National Park, where the weather changed every 15 minutes.
I took a shorter hike than my accompanying menfolk (they were gone an additional hour) and by the time they returned, it was snowing again.
