We got up with the sun the next day and drove straight to the Grand Canyon. Here we awed at the sight for a few hours. The Grand Canyon is very grand indeed. This was Winston's first time seeing the canyon and Caitlin's second. It was on Winston's list of things he wanted to see before he died, so he can check that one off now. We stayed in a campsite nearby and we were welcomed to the site by a herd of Elk in rutting season. This was quite the surprise and absolutely amazing. There were maybe 15 females and babies with two 6 by 6 bucks. It just so happened this was all taking place right in our campground so we spent a while in the van waiting for them to move on. We got some great pictures and footage on video. We will post the video when we have better internet later.

Traveling to New Mexico to WWOOF
After much festivities we finally hit the road on Sunday October 4th at around 4:00 pm. Our first stop was in Santa Cruz visiting a friend and stayed the night there. We got up early the next morning and drove 8 hours straight to the Mojave Desert. We arrived late in the day but took in the beautiful desert with Joshua Tree's, Yucca and Sage surrounding us.
