The Adventures of Matt and Loral Before Getting Engaged.... (Cont'd)

(May '08)

Matt and I and friends made the drive to Havasupai, an Indian village in Arizona in the Grand Canyon. The hike down through switchbacks and the canyon to Havasupai takes about 5 hours and is10 miles long, but well worth it! This was the most beautiful place I have been with the clear blue water against the red rock.

The canyon we hiked for 10 miles. We made the hike to and from the car at night so we never saw what the canyon looked like until the morning after we hiked out.

California Trip (Bakersfield, Santa Barbara & San Francisco!)
June '08

Matt and I had the opportunity to visit family in Bakersfield when I had a family reunion. After Bakersfield we visited his family in Santa Barbara and then we were able to visit his brother Bill and his now Fiance, Angie, who were nice enough to have us for a couple of days while Matt and I explored San Francisco. We were able to ride a trolley, visit Chinatown, walk along Pier 49, eat ice cream at Ghiradelli square and take a tour of Alcatraz! It was so much fun to see family and make the beautiful drive up the 1 on the coast of California.
