In Arizona

outside of a bar in Old Town, Scottsdale

Months ago we had planned this trip, only because my cousin is having her first baby shower. We decided to make a trip out of it, by discovering what Phoenix/Scottsdale has to offer and hiking the Grand Canyon. We even managed to get a camping permit and were thrilled to finally use our camping gear that we got from our wedding registry. Obviously, all of this was planned before the wacky immigration law passed. We already have a boatload of stories to tell, so stay tuned for more on our encounters in Arizona. For the next three days, we will be truly unplugged and completely immersed in nature.
