After a week out west, I have to say that those who claim the 100° in Arizona isn't bad because its a dry heat are nuts. Dry or not, 100° is hot! The day we got home, it was 68 degrees in Michgan....much better!
Our vacation got off to a very interesting start. It turned out that our flight from Chicago to Vegas was the New Kids on the Block Party Plane. A couple dozen fans paid extra to spend the flight with the NKOTB. The rest of us we included in the party too.
I was never a fan of theirs, but I must say that the five guys seemed genuinely nice. They didn't act at all like they were too big for us common folk. They joked, took over the plane's intercom and made goofy announcements, bought drinks for everyone one board, gave free tickets to their Vegas show (we didn't go...weren't in town that day), gave us their newest CD, and...
Here is a Billboard Magazine article about the flight. MTV has a little something, too. They shot a video of the flight, too
I could see the back of my head for about half a second, but otherwise, no closeups of the WW family.
The Hoover Dam was our next stop. It's very big and very impressive!
The wedding was in Sedona, Arizona and while there we got so see some beautiful scenery. This was taken as we hike to Cathedral Rock.
We also spent a day a bit north of the Grand Canyon, in Glen Canyon. The Colorado River is much calmer there and we spent 3 1/2 hours on a smooth raft trip.
We flew home the next day.
I was on vacation, but my mailman was not. A huge pile of PWEs and bubble mailers were waiting for me, and I'll be getting into them tomorrow.
