One Grand Trip

I turned 50 and my marriage turned 20 in 2019. It was a heckuva grand year, with no better way to mark the occasion than flying to Phoenix and making a slow drive back home through the American Southwest. Along the way, we saw lots of new birds and thought lots of new thoughts about the nature of things.
