Day 3: Wichita Falls, TX to Flagstaff, AZ Our goal for day 3 was to make it to Flagstaff, AZ which is the closest city to the Grand Canyon. This drive beholds beautiful rolling desert hills and, once we crossed the Arizona state line, one of the prettiest sunsets either of us had seen. Luckily we weren’t attacked by any stray flying objects (except tumbleweed) and it was a nice smooth drive! Day 4: Grand Canyon! (Flagstaff, AZ to Sacramento, CA) Today was Grand Canyon day! Seeing as how Carry had only been to the Grand Canyon once and Lauren had never been there before, we thought it was an appropriate 2 hour detour to start the day. And wow, it did not disappoint! One could definitely spend hours just gazing at the vast beauty and wonder of it all. After sight seeing for a little bit, we decided to high tail it for the rest of the day to Sacramento, CA so we could take extra time on the final day of our journey.
