My license plate that was once attached to my rental car.
One thing that you should know about me is that I'm hardheaded and I like to have my own way. After I lost my job (don't worry, I'll tell you that story one day), I decided that this was the perfect time to go see the Grand Canyon. And while I was at it... I'd see a few more canyons along the way.
Canyon Overlook Trail, Zion National Park
I asked myself a few important questions before I started planning this journey....
Q: Samantha, have you ever done a road trip before?
Q: Do you know how to drive on desert terrain?
Q: Are you prepared drive 1,200 miles alone?
A: NOT REALLY
Q: Once you arrive, are you in any physical condition to go hiking?
A: UH HUH
(I had a sprained ankle and a busted kneecap)
Q: Do you know how to camp and pitch a tent?
Q: Did I have the money to spend on hotels, rental car, dining out?
Q: Should you take your crippled unemployed behind directly to your mother's house?
