What happens when a photographer turns her notebook into a travel diary? We get to follow Eccolo ambassador on her first road trip with her new husband.
"We stopped in this cool old store called Hackleberry General Store. It was photo heaven for me. I didn't want to leave!"
"Although the slot machines were still call my name, Rob & I hit the road to head to the grand canyon. We always wanted to do the route 66 drive so we hit the open road for the next leg of our adventure."
"Watching the sun set over the Grand Canyon was an amazing experience. It's truly one of mother nature's best creations! I had to check the Grand Canyon off my travel bucket list!"
"Walking to the edge of this rock was exciting & slightly scary, but worth it. Anything for the shot!"
"I knew the Grand Canyon was huge but seeing it in person was still mind-blowing. We had this map to navigate our way through the park, but... It didn't help. It's a great keepsake though."
"After an adventurous time at the grand canyon, we headed to Sedona for much need massages & relaxation. The scenery in Sedona was absolutely breathtaking. We were surrounded by beautiful red rock formations & canyons. Rob was driving like a race car driver, so I barely captured this photo."
"Cruisin along & enjoying the amazing views...
Although this jeep was riding too slow, we enjoyed the view."
"We hiked up to the top of this super scary cliff to see the lunar eclipse. When we got to the top, we drank wine & enjoyed the amazing views. It was pitch black outside when it was time to hike down. I was scared to death. I thought a coyote was going to eat us. We lived though."
"I'm not an outdoorsy woman and our hike reminded me of that. Five-year-olds were passing me on the trail."
"The next day we walked around so I could take some cool photos. A car almost ran me over after Rob snapped this photo."
"Sedona was fantastic. It's such a serene getaway. It was a far cry from the hectic city life that we're used to. After getting through a ridiculously busy year, our 5-star getaway was just what we needed."
Photo 1: "I couldn't get enough of the views!"
Photo 2: "I loved these great Native American quotes they left in our suite each day."
Photo 3: "While hiking, we came across tons of cairns, or stacked rocks. Rock stacking is a spiritual practice that many say help the person memorialize a loved one. "
"By the time we got to Scottsdale, we were exhausted. We spent the last couple of days relaxing and trying to stay out of the heat. "
"After being lazy all morning, Rob & decide to head to the Desert Botanical Garden. The cacti were amazing. There were so many species of the beautiful plant. However, we didn't see them all because it was 107 degrees. We couldn't take the heat so we got out of the kitchen. Not sure why we thought going there at 1:30 in the afternoon was a good idea."
"This was my favorite quote from our room in Sedona. I think it sums up my life: Living in my journey and learning all of life's lessons while still enjoying the beauty of it all! I plan to continue traveling and learning until I'm an old lady!!"
