Just Another Tequila Sunrise (minus the tequila)

I have done some other cool stuff lately. I was going to blog about it, but at the time I didn't have a blog. Now I feel like it is too late, but whatever. I suppose it wouldn't be much like me to do things on time.

A few weeks ago I went to Albuquerque to do a little bit of work. I was there for three days and then left so that I would be home when my parents came into town. I finished work and was on the road at 10:30 on a Wednesday night, Sept. 10 to be exact. I was about a hundred miles outside of Tucson around one in the morning when I saw this brown historical sign "Grand Canyon 190 miles". Over the next hour I weighed my options in my head. As much as I really wanted to go home, I could see the sunrise over the Grand Canyon. And that would be a story!!



So after dismantling a gas station power outlet to charge my phone, a run in with the police (unrelated), a stop at Denny's for some breakfast and pecan pie, I arrived at the Grand Canyon. Turns out that is a very cold part of Arizona. So wrapped in my blanket I watched the sunrise. A nice way to start a day I have to say.

Brad, I am a little afraid to read your blog. When I clicked on the link from Christin's blog, this pops up:

"This blog is currently under review due to possible Blogger Terms of Service violations.

Is the content appropriate?? If not I am not sure your dad can handle it. I think come times Christin's frightens him. (at least from what I can tell from his comments)

Brado-
I didn't know you took pictures of this. You look all crazy & homeless under that blanket, but the sunrise is amazing.
That's my brother. Taking 190 mile detours. Gotta love it.

It was really only 90 miles each way. Which I suppose is close to 190 miles . . .

I absolutely completely am in love with that sunrise picture. I could look at it everyday and never get tired of it.

Beautiful.

Jessica, I thought the same thing when I logged onto it the first time. A phone call was placed right after I saw that note and logged back off. He assured me it was nothing bad and not to get on it until he told me to. I got tired of waiting and got on tonight. The wood was the only thing he was hiding, lucky for him! And your correct again that Christin's scares me at times....
