Grand Adventure Roadtrip – Day 15

The adventure – roadtrip from the East Coast to the Grand Canyon and back.

The goals:

  • Bicycle in every state we drive through.
  • Visit as many national parks as we can.
  • Celebrate the wins… a roadtrip isn’t a roadtrip without some ‘misses’.

Today’s lesson

Mother Nature is still showing her might.

Camping at Kartchner Caverns State Park was abandoned. Flash flood warnings made that seem foolish.

The lesson (again) – flexibility is key to adventuring.

Today’s win

Finding murals in the small town of Benson, Arizona.

Public art in a town with a population of 5000 is a pleasant surprise.
