Well, hello sunshine!
(I knew it was going to be a great day with the Missouri sun sending us off on our trip!)
After a quick 1 1/2 flight to Dallas we would wait for our next flight.
We found our happy while kicked back on the reclining chairs with a hot chocolate and people watching.... yes lots of great people watching in airports!
(Paul and Whitnee had to work today)
If you have never been here you should go...it's beautiful!
Pictures doesn't really do this place justice because of the panoramic view.
This year I was much wiser....
I brought the tripod for our camera so we could get some great shots of us too!
Independence Monument is all that remains of a continuous ridge that once formed a wall between Monument and Wedding Canyons. A cap of durable Kayenta rock has protected this picturesque 450 feet (137 meters) high monolith from the relentless erosion that carried away the surrounding rock.
You can read more about it and see pictures on the link below.....
(It was windy and Brandon was laughing at all the truckers driving by honking... anything for his wife! Ha!)
I didn't take my camera in at Paul and Whitnee's (what? Are you sure I am feeling ok?) because I wanted to just visit. Whitnee had fixed dinner for us and it was amazing! Some crock pot creation from pintrest and it was awesome! It was good to see the kids and I can't believe how much they have grown in a year! We decided to call it an early night.... heck we are old people that traveled all day!
(Thank you Wayne Washburn for letting us use your Platinum Ambassador status... hello free upgrade! Oh Yeah!)
