    My adventure began on July 26th in Omaha, Nebraska. The drive there was three long, gruesome hours in a non air-conditioned van with the scalding humid heat of the Midwest compressing down on me, but I knew that that drive was going to be a little jaunt compared to what was coming next. I boarded...

      In all honesty, my trip to the Grand Canyon West Rim was chaotic. My family simply planned to leave in the morning, arrive at lunch, spend our day there, and head home before it got dark. That didn’t work out as planned. With the dreadfully long, utterly boring, cringe-worthy car ride, we...
