Mostly Happy Trails

 I take full blame for that dollar store plastic gun and the soundtrack it gave our drive home.
Thought it'd die within minutes, but somehow that thing is still going strong weeks later.

We went out of the way to see some more of Arizona on our way home.
Started with Justin's favorite place in the world: The Mogollon Rim.
 He has dreams of retiring there.

The Painted Desert Indian Center
(a touristy, but fun roadside stop along the way)

The Painted Forest National Park
Justin's dad and aunt both made faces when we told them where we were headed.
I had been wanting to go there, but wasn't sure summer (aka HOT) was the best time.
So happy and relieved that both the weather and the place were amazing.
 These are all good cases of, "pictures don't do it justice."

 There were petroglyphs on the stones below.
Loved the sense of history.

One of the "teepee" mountains in the background.

 So crazy that these petrified stumps are 200+ million years old.
From the triassic period, even before dinosaurs.

 Not a huge piece of petrified wood, but still so heavy.

 Loved all the colors.

A Corner in Winslow, Arizona
Before heading to our Flagstaff hotel, we had to stop at the famous corner.
