  • We cruised…8 Scenic Byways (AKA *Pearl Highways) …for 7 National Parks…3 National Monuments…2 State Parks & 2 UNESCO World Heritage sites.

And experienced amazing contrasts of color & landscapes…leftover winter’s white snow clinging to jagged gray-black granite mountain tops…hillsides covered with deep green Pines mixed with lime green Aspen leaves…orange sand surrounding deep red-brown rock formations.

  • Our full moon at the end our trip…was another portentous sign…like our full rainbow in Jackson Hole.

FUN-fact – Navajo Sandstone creates Sahara-like deserts.

More FF – Chris says, “You’re always looking for a *pearl.” And winding along those sweet roads is a guarantee you’ll find one!

  • The whole reason for the trip was Brayden’s graduation from NAU. We are so proud of him!

  • We drove a total of 3675 miles…mostly on two lane highways…from the dry warm desert floor…to the cool snow capped Rocky Mountains…across the plains of Wyoming…to the Elk & San Juan Mountains…& ending back in the dry desert.
  • After leaving Flagstaff we spent 5 days in Torrey, Moab & Vernal, UT before heading to Jackson Hole for our 4 day Grand Teton & Yellowstone Safari.

FUN-fact – Petrified sand dunes…like giant blobs of clay…look as if they belong on the moon.

Uniquely UNESCO & Totally Templed!

  • The big “trip attraction”… Kyoto’s Kiyomizu-dera…one of the 21 places vying for the New 7 Wonders of the World. We have now officially made it to 20 of them! Don’t think Timbuktu is ever gonna happen. Japan has 21 UNESCO World Heritage sites & we saw a total of 10. Plus we made it to a grand total of 17 Temples/Shrines.
  • We found Scottie, our travel agent at Experience Japan Travel, through Zicasso. He lives in Kyoto and is a Kiwi by birth. So know language barrier! He did a fabulous job of creating a customized itinerary based on our desires. He can be reached at
