Over the past couple of years, I take a trip with Matt and a few of his friends to the Grand Canyon for a weekend.  Traditionally we go at the beginning of the year, so it’s usually minus ten degrees at night and everything is blanketed in snow (which is actually quite an amazing sight to see the canyon layered with white).  Yet, as some of you may know, we just took a trip out there a couple of weeks ago.  Matt and his old roomie Albert wanted to take their friend Dean to see the splendor that is the canyon before he left to go live in Whales for a year (he had never seen the canyon before).

So we went in August!  And it was HOT!  All in all a very good time, despite the heat though.

Dean, I hope you have a wonderful time in Europe, and make sure to take lots of pictures to show everyone when you come back!
