Tourist Trap Temptations

When we were planning our latest trip, Teenage Daughter asked if we could make a side trip to the Grand Canyon Caverns. My mind went straight to this old photo that I found when I was scanning old family albums. The couple in the middle -- that's Grandpa and Grandma. 

I was hoping that the sign would still be there, because wouldn't it be neat to have a new one with the kids that I could combine with the old one in a scrapbooking layout? The sign is gone, but by the time we got underground, I was too taken in by the cave to even remember it.

We'd driven past the signs for years without a second though, thinking that it was just another pricey tourist trap. It's actually one of the largest dry limestone caverns in the world. Not as amazing as Carlsbad Caverns, but it was worth the trip.

In the gift shop, they were selling old phones from the motel. If we weren't on the verge of giving up the landline, I would have totally brought one home.

How fun! I'll have to see if I can get out there.
