Trip West



All this rain today is kind of reminding me of the trip west Tom and I took a couple of summers ago. We stopped by the north rim of the Grand Canyon and hiked this beautiful trail with breathtaking peaks of the canyon here and there but mostly dense pine and forest everywhere. I distinctly remember Tom doing his Johnny Depp Pirates of the Caribbean walk/run impression and almost tripping over a log and me afraid to pee in the woods in case a bear might suddenly pop up at any moment. We had just made it back to the car when this summer thunderstorm broke loose and it was beautiful! We we're snug and safe in the car and enjoyed our lunch while listening to the rain and smiling at our good fortune. I know todays rain is not quite the same but thought it might be enjoyable to view some summer rain !
