Day 1 will be Matthew's longest ride in a single day. The Grand Canyon is only 200 miles from home,
but we are planning to wrap around the east end to reach the North Rim.
I planned to take the full day off from work so we could take our time with frequent stops today.
An emergency required me to work in the morning so it was about 1:15 PM before we left home.
We shoot up I-17 to Flagstaff.
Matthew hangs tough, and we make good time with minimal stops.
The Bridge in Cameron
Matt keeps a death-clinch on my belt.
The scenery across the Navajo Nation is great, but boring for us since we've seen it all too many times.
