Speed Blogging!!!

So I have a lot to say and I don't want to bore you. Combining a few posts should do the trick. I'll do my best to write key details and leave out the fluff.

Grand Canyon was grand indeed. We hiked down from the North Rim to the bottom and then back up. three nights inside the canyon and a fourth night on the Rim at a sweet campsite called/on Cape Final. We both had a really good experience and want to go back and explore some more next time. At the bottom we camped on a plateau bordering the Colorado River (not at the massive campsite/lodge they've been so nice to place at the bottom of the was full). We had to haul water up, but we were the only ones up there and it was my favorite night. A rodent also stole our sponge in the middle of the night. I would've gone for the snickers bars myself.

More Pictures Not Coming Soon

After the GC, we met up with Jason and Heather again...this time to celebrate Halloween. Great night. It took us about 3/4 of the night to figure out that all you have to do to partake in the dieschity of Vegas on Halloween is to blurt out as loudly as possible what someone's costume is that is walking by.


Like that.

Jeremiah brought the camera, but I have a few of his pictures from the night. Costumes were as follows:

Mary - box of Kleenex (great costume for dancing in a crowded area)
Eric - Adam Morrison (recognized only by men in their 20's and early 30's)

Jason - Bubble Wrap
Heather - Caribou Barbie (aka, Sarah Palin)

Jeremiah - A Mexican
Citlali - An American

I Stand Before You...

...with mustache and scenery and nothing else. It's been a long, awkward fight to get where I am today, but I made it.

To the doubters out there: I told you I could grow it, bare chin and all. And to the children, the next generation, my inspiration: anything is possible. Anything.
