Sorry I couldn’t tell you about this earlier but we were out celebrating Earth Day 2013 in style. We went to the Grand Canyon. On the way, as is my wont, we stopped at Montezuma Castle National Monument — which is half and hour or so south of Flagstaff, straight off I-17. So we did two National ‘entities’ in the day. That both the Canyon (for the whole week) and the Castle (at least for the day) waived their entrance fees that day in honor of Earth Day was a bonus. More on the Canyon experience, which indeed was Grand, tomorrow.
