Diane surprised me for my 30th birthday: A trip to the Grand Canyon.
It was incredible. It was snowing like crazy as we arrived—more than they’d had in over 15 years, they said. 18 inches. There were photographers everywhere.
We hiked all the way down the Bright Angel Trail to where it was warm, like spring, then hiked back up to the winter. In crampons. I was so tired at the end that I was drooling spontaneously any time I leaned over.
A pretty amazing trip.
