I am not sure why but Robb and I both have this obsession, if you will, about trees. We just love them!
Capitol Reef National Park
Fruita School House. Capitol Reef.This is where we camped for a couple days. right by Goblin Valley State Park, UT.
Onnnnn the road again.........
So the nice thing about this trip was that we didn't plan ANYTHING! We just kinda looked at the map and drove, planned things as we went along. Petrified Forest wasn't on our list of things to do. But we were here most of the day. there were alot of Indian homesteads here and petroglyphs that were pretty cool...and of course petrified wood!! haha....
Yes and we did go see the "big Ditch" it wasn't a very good day for it. The weather was nice but there was a fire somewhere and it made the grand canyon pretty hazy..but other than that it was awesome.
This is at the top of the tower over looking the grand canyon.
So I am gonna end with this adorable cute picture! What happened was we were in San Diego for maybe 2 hours when we noticed this awful sound coming from my engine of course. So we decided that it was pretty terrible we would go have it looked at. Robb thought it was a wheel barring? and I know those are alot of money..so I was pretty bumbed about that. Well turns out that wasn't it. So we took it to a transmission place. And of course it is my "transfer case" this guy told us that it would be $2,200 just for the new part..haha way to go Oldsmobile lets make a car that is crazy hard to fix, and then lets make all the parts wicked expensive..ya that's a great idea! So we drove back to the hotel made some phone calls and found a junk yard that would fix it for 600..perfect "and you can have it done today?!?!?".."yeah if you get it here right now".. so we hurried and drove downtown. So we give the car to these guys they said they'll have it done by 5. They told us to just ride the trolley downtown and hang out and they'll call us when it's done..so 5 o'clock rolls around and of course the car isn't done. (ok sorry i forgot to tell you about this place we took it, complete GHETTO!!!! so so so scary!) so one of the girls gave us a ride back to our hotel they told us it would be done tomorrow! so we stuck around the hotel the next day thinking our car would be done about 1....waiting...waiting...waiting...hahahaha..nothing!!! we were supposed to go to sea world and the zoo blah blah blah. well long story short we didn't get to do anything fun in San Diego cus we were waiting on our car the whole time. and our hotel was located like in residential business part of town so there was nothing to do and we had to walk like 8 block to get a bus.. :) so anyways $1500 and 3 days later we got the car finally. we were so mad and frustrated. I told Robb that as soon as we get the car we are driving home!! straight home!! we were supposed to do the red wood forest, Yosemite, the coast up to Oregon well that didn't happen were saving that for next time..but we had a blast and that's all that counts!
