Last week, we hiked a portion of the Bright Angel trail down into the Grand Canyon. This trail leads you 9.6 miles to Phantom Ranch, a primitive lodge & campsite. My goal is to reach there before I am 50. •••••••••••••
But for now, we completed their first part of the trail. See where the people are on the left? That's the first resting point - only 1.5 miles down. And the patch of green trees in the middle is Indian Garden - 4.6 miles down. Doesn't sound like much, right? But what you have to remember is that the further down you go, that's how much further you have to climb back out and that was HARD! •••••••••••
Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon? Or hiked the Bright Angel trail? Tell me about it!! #adarlingroadtrip

Had a lovely lunch with @germanytourism at @lenoiratx learning about Southwestern Germany & Bavaria today. It was so much more than biergartens & Black Forest cake (though that does look delicious)! ••••••••••
Have you been to Germany before 🇩🇪? What was your favorite place to visit there? #germanytourism #luthercountry

Happy First Day of Spring (though it's been spring-like for the last 6 weeks here in Texas 😏Did we ever have a winter?) These Texas Bluebonnets were spotted at the beginning of our Spring Break road trip in the Texas Hill Country - always a sign that spring has arrived around here! ☀️🌈🌼🌺🌸🌍🌞
In one word, where are you on this first day of Spring?

3 states.
7 National Parks.
8 Days.
2615 miles.
Countless memories.

Thank you so much for following our National Parks Spring Break Roadtrip this past week! We appreciate all the love we received from all of you while on the road! ❤️❤️❤️ Check out all our fun with this tag: #adarlingroadtrip

It's a gorgeous night for the drive-in! We found one in Lubbock to catch Beauty & the Beast at. Have you been to a drive-in movie before? #adarlingroadtrip

We found another fun spot to stay at on our journey home - check out our deluxe cabin at the Albuquerque Central KOA (swipe right to see all the photos). It was right off I-40, but you never would have known it with how quiet & peaceful it was. We sat out on our patio and watched the beautiful sunset last night! @kampgroundsofamerica #adarlingroadtrip

Got our kicks on Route 66 today with famous corners, tee-pees, petrified forests, & this beautiful painted desert. So much to see out here in the West. #adarlingroadtrip

We hiked the Bright Angel trail down into the Grand Canyon today. Going down was easy-peasy, but then we had to go back up.....😳🙄😜 Check out our IG Story to see how that went! #adarlingroadtrip

Live for the moments that take your breath away. #adarlingroadtrip

Good morning from the Grand Canyon! Hiking the South Rim trail today - service is spotty, so I'm putting my phone away to enjoy the view. 😍😎 (National Park #6 ) #adarlingroadtrip

Our quick drive thru Sedona, AZ paid off big time as we hiked to the base of Cathedral Rock and saw such wonders as Bell & Snoopy Rock. Slide right to see if you can pick out Snoopy!

Montezuma Castle National Monument - the remains of a 5-story dwelling built over 700 years ago. We spoke with a volunteer who had been inside it a few times (closed to the public in the 50's) and his stories were fascinating. History rocks. (NPS #5 ) #adarlingroadtrip
