    We had a nice surprise last week… I received a PM from a pair of travelers from the Netherlands who are traveling through and around the United States. They were going to be at the Grand Canyon for a few days and were looking for a place to pitch a tent.

    :eek1Really like the pictures. Now I'm itching to get back to Arizona and retrace the route down Oak Creek Canyon to Sedona and on to Jerome. This is one beautiful part of the county, especially on a motorcycle.
