A Break... And Salt River Canyon

You know the BEST remedy for wedding planning blues???
Going on a weekend trip with the hubs to be!!

After the wedding date change last week and all that stress I needed a break. 
So we loaded up the truck and trailer and went up to Show Low, Arizona to a team roping for the weekend. 

The pickup and horse trailer parked in a pullout coming down into Salt River Canyon
To get to Show Low from where we live, the road leads you through Salt River Canyon, Arizona. 
It's a fairly dangerous, crazy sloping road... 
You are bound to smell smoking breaks and see lots of tire marks. 
In other words it's a WHOLE lot of down hill, then back up the other side driving.

BUT... it's a most BEAUTIFUL place.  

View of the canyon
The cutouts in the rocks are amazing and when you stand on the edge you feel SO high up and a little reckless that it takes your breath away. 

View of the bluffs
During your wedding planning sometimes you're going to need a break. 
And regardless of where you go... 
As long as you go with your sweetie and have a good time... 
those are amazing memories made... 
that are just as important as the wedding planning madness, if not more so. ;)

Me and the Mister, Salt River Canyon

I totally agree you needed a pre-wedding break, your planning has been a little more stressful than most people endure. Looks like you had a beautiful weekend :)

Awww... I love seeing people in love. It makes me giddy and excited! Congrats!

I found your site from another blog. I just wanted to tell you personally that I have a site that allows women to engage and really connect with each other. You won't find the same unpromising atmosphere that you normally do in other mommy blog communities. Our site allows you to gain INSTANT followers (yes, they really do follow, you'll see), INCREASE YOUR TRAFFIC, and have a chance to connect with some great women. We also have a directory where you would have a chance to have your site and a few of your content inserted so that it may link directly from our site to yours giving you added traffic.

Hope to see you there!

Sincerely,

Lexie Lane
