Road Trip 2010 - Back in Minnesota

On our last part of the trip we stopped at some funky things like Cadillac Ranch outside Amarillo and the Devil's Rope Museum (barbed wire).

We finally ended the road trip at my parents house after 2559 miles in total. We traveled through 10 states, saw license plates from 44 states, 6 Canadian Provences', and 1 from Mexico.

Road Trip 2010 - Grand Canyon

Monday, we arrived at the Grand Canyon. Obviously our picture doesn't do it justice. Doesn't it look like were standing in front of a backdrop?

Yesterday we left Arizona early, and made one stop at Walnut Canyon National Monument near Flagstaff. Here, we saw the cliff dwellings of people who lived in the area 900 years ago.

Then we drove to Amarillo in the Texas panhandle. It was 680 miles yesterday and we completely bypassed the mountain time zone!

Angel Island

We spent our last weekend adventure exploring Angel Island on Sunday. Visitors must take a ferry, so we took the Tiburon Ferry on the north side. Angel Island is considered the Ellis Island of the West, and many Chinese immigrants passed through the Immigration Station from 1910-1940s.

We hiked 5 miles, which took us up to Mt. Livermore at 788 feet, then down to Fort McDowell and the Immigration Station. We got to view the city and Alcatraz one last time before we head out on Friday.

I Love DwellStudio

No, these aren't always on our sofa. They are just all my DwellStudio pillows from Target. I love them and every time I go to Target I swing by the isle in the bedding department to ogle at them. Dwell actually makes a line under their own name and makes another (less expensive) line for Target. Both of which I love, only one of which I can afford. Today I just bought 2 more (on clearance) and I can't wait to splurge on the new bedding line after we get back to MN.
