Itinerary & Journal

This is the first page (Second Page) of the itinerary that we were given for the trip. For the most part we were able to stay pretty close to this.

Journal excerpts are given below, and you can click on them to go to the full entry for that day. I truly hope that you enjoy reading them as much as I've enjoyed making this webpage and remembering just how amazing is the Grand Canyon.

Day 1: Champaign, Illinois to Elk City, Oklahoma
