After seeing so many national parks, I didn't expect much from the Grand Canyon but I was blown away by it. I don't think the pictures will be all that impressive but I was certainly impressed.

The end of the trip evolved into seeing a lot of old Indian ruins. In part, this was inspired by the X-Files television show where they talk about the Anasazi and cliff dwellers.

Manzanar is still a work in progress.
