It has been a very busy 10 days since the last post. Long days and lack of consistent internet access have conspired to make updating the blog a bit challenging. Now that we're in Albuquerque it is a bit easier to do so.
Since the beginning of the trip we've traveled 1,800 miles in the vans, gone from an elevation of 4,000 feet (in Albuquerque) to 8,890 (Grand Canyon) to 1,500 (Phoenix) and this evening about 10,000+ (Sandia Peak).
We've visited the following museums and national parks/monuments: Bradbury Science Museum, Bandelier, John Wesley Powell Museum, Zion National Park, Zion Human History Museum, Pipe Springs National Monument, Grand Canyon, Navajo Bridge, Montezuma's Castle National Monument, Scottsdale Contemporary Art Museum, Musical Instrument Museum, Heard Museum, ASU Museum, Desert Botanical Garden, Petrified National Forest, El Malpais National Monument, New Mexico Museum of Natural History, Albuquerque Botanical Garden, Albuquerque Aquarium, Petroglyph National Monument, and the International Hot Air Balloon Museum (today we round it out with the Rattlesnake Museum, Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, and the New Mexico Ski Museum).
All in all, we are tired but happy.
All of our pictures will be posted to this Facebook page:
