Well, the dog is gone, so it's time to take our first extended trip. Not being the sort of person to do things by halves, I suggested to my DH, Bill that we should drive to Arizona. We plan on heading straight to AZ so I can attend Donald's workshop, then after that, we're going for a bit of a visit with a couple of Bill's kids who live in Palm Desert, CA. From there, we plan on taking our time getting back & going up thru Nevada, Utah & Colorado...so... I know there's lots to see on the homeward leg of our trip... any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
