Roadtrip: The Grand Canyon

Let me just start by saying, if you've never been to the Grand Canyon do yourself a favor- add it to your bucket list and make it happen. I finally understand what the word breathtaking means. When I first arrived clouds overhead and even then it looked amazing. Once the clouds moved and the sun shined through the canyons splendor was in full force. It was late afternoon which ended up being perfect because sunset was just a couple of hours away. I heard the best place to see the sunset was Desert View Point. It certainly was. As the sun set every couple of seconds the colors in the sky and in the canyon changed to purple, pink, green and blue hues surrounding everyone there as the sun continued to descend and it was magical.

Road Trip: Hoover Dam, NV

It was my second time to Hoover Dam and I still enjoyed visiting and walking around. This place is really impressive as it was built during the Great Depression and it only took them 5 years to build it. Love walking around the Deco Style architecture and the beautiful landscape.


Deciding what to wear for this trip was a no-brainer. A light cotton t-shirt from Penfield, distressed jeans from Denim & SupplyPalladium boots and belt from Mission Belt had me ready for the heat and anything that came my way.



Do not be deceived, these boots are extremely comfortable.
The bridge over Hoover Dam. Talk about reaching great heights!




Road Trip: Galaxy Diner on Route 66


Little did we know that right across a most awful hotel where we spent the night there would be this awesome 50's diner on Route 66 in Flagstaff, AZ called Galaxy Diner. I can honestly say that breakfast and lunch are great here because we came twice on the same day specifically because they offer 100 different milkshakes flavors. We had to come back for the milk shakes (Yolo)! I had the cookies and cream and chocolate milkshake while my little sister had the brownie chocolate milkshake and they give you the silver cup where its all mixed, so good.

Road Trip: Albuquerque

Due to last minute changes Albuquerque, NM became the next stop and I was OK with that. A friend recommended that hands down I had to get breakfast at Duran Central Pharmacy. Sounds a bit strange, I know, but when you enter the pharmacy just head to the back and a cool little restaurant will be there to serve you some really delicious food. Whatever you get will be a great choice but make sure to ask for a tortilla with butter. So good! After that delicious breakfast we headed to downtown Albuquerque to view the KiMO Theatre which was built in the 1920's. I'm such a fan of deco and southwestern style architecture of this building.

The last stop was the Petroglyph National Monument where Native Americans painted on the volcanic stones hundreds of years ago. There was a field of wild flowers right next to them so you know I couldn't pass up that kind of photo op.

Caught in the act! Instagraming my Aldo shoes instead of the petroglyph right behind me.
