Worried....

.... I've fallen behind on my booking (it's not very hard to do on the road - when you can go four days at a time without internet)....

On the upside - Zion National Park was amazing. Probably the best park that we've been to on this trip - Matt and I hiked up the Narrows. Which is basically an unmarked hiking trail, up a river, and between these crazy sheer rock canyon walls. They warn you that there are flash floods there all the time. But we took the chance anyways. Hiking up it was a pain - literally, hidden rocks were trying to sprain our ankles at every turn - but getting down it was fun. As all the Chinese tourists stared us down with jealousy (they brought too many cameras to float down it) we just held our breath and let the current take us.

Did you know that Mormons cannot drink coffee? or tea? or beer? They made Matt carry their beer, because they didn't want to be seen by any members of their church.

Now we're in Vegas.... we've been here since Saturday afternoon.... actually packing up and heading towards the Grand Canyon today. Don't know what to tell you about Vegas - it's all plaster and Styrofoam. It's all razzle dazzle, casino bullshit - everywhere you look it's - an Adult Mag store, a liquor store, a tittie bar, a big flashing casino, some fast food, and a smoke shop. It's hot, there really aren't any good parks, and I'm not sure if their water is drinkable....

Shot with a bunch of people this week - most importantly Ransom (the cheese!) We got a lot of great stuff done, should have more to post as I get them..... and sure, this photo's a little risque - but alas, everything's covered.... : ) He's doing a fruit series - I'm his banana hammock girl.

Well that certainly blow if your road trip had to come to a premature end or for that matter any delays.

Of course my disappointment is mostly self-indulgent since I'm anxiously awaiting the Ohio leg of your return trip.

Oops...I meant would blow if your trip came to an end early.

Very sorry to hear that you might have to cut your trip short. Shame because I think you are one of a kind to begin with and then to do something like this made you even more special.
