We have beautiful parks and landmarks in Canada. Especially in Quebec, where I am from. But when you’re young, you don’t appreciate what’s around you and think the rest of the world has more to offer. For this reason, my friend and I decided to tour a small part of the south-western U.S.. We rented a Mustang convertible and headed out from Phoenix, Arizona. We drove north to Tombstone and visited the historic O.K. Corral. Then we drove back south and headed for the Grand Canyon. The drive through the desert was an unforgettable experience. The desert has its own understated, barren beauty. And being completely foreign to us, we were excited to be experiencing the drive through it. At one point, we actually saw a roadrunner. Beep beep!
The next day, we drove from Flagstaff to Grand Canyon National Park. We started off with the convertible’s top down, wearing tank tops and shorts, and enjoying the 100f+ weather. As we continued to drive, the elevation got higher, and the weather started cooling off. At one point, we had to pull over and put the convertible’s top up. A little while later, the heaters were turned on. Finally, all the sweaters we could find were rummaged out of our luggage and draped over us as we shivered under the flimsy soft-top of the car. Suddenly, it started to snow. We went from tropical heat to winter all in the space of about a one hour drive!
We arrived at the entrance gate for the park and paid, then continued to drive. It had finally stopped snowing. At this point, we hadn’t even caught a glimpse of the Grand Canyon. We got the sense we were near it...

I was cleaning out my closet today, and I found that tacky shirt you got me for my birthday last year, with the parrot who’s eyes bulged out and who’s head became all deformed over...
