We ate PBJs and cucumbers, scoped out the campsites (they have RV hookups...yeah!), and watched the fireflies.
It's so nice to spend quiet time out in the great out-of-doors.

From a Google Talk chat this afternoon. Edited for clarity:
Timothy: meatloaf sure is salty!
Rebecca: mmmmm! salt......!
Timothy: (is salty)
Rebecca: how true
Timothy: (gravy is salty, not meatloaf is gravy)
Rebecca: also true
Timothy: (meatloaf is not gravy)
Rebecca: you're just full of true statements today, aren't you?
Timothy: i guess you are too!
did you buy lunch today then?
Timothy: i did
Rebecca: maybe when we have lunch together, I should go over there and have meatloaf and gravy!
I've been craving salt all day
Timothy: wow. their rolls are actually not stale
Rebecca: is that the only thing that determines whether a roll is good or not? if it's stale?
Timothy: it is not
how is it then? (besides not stale)
Timothy: it is tolerable
Timothy: stale is not tolerable
tolerable is not stale
tolerable is other things too
Rebecca: like what?
Timothy: tolerable is edible
stale is not edible
Rebecca: stale is edible!
Timothy: no it is not
Rebecca: yes, it is
stale is not enjoyable
Timothy: edible is enjoyable
Rebecca: no, edible is able to be eaten
moldy is edible
petrified is not edible
Timothy: petrified is edible
Rebecca: is not!
Timothy: petrified is enjoyable
you've got your booleans switched around, I think
Timothy: petrified is very tolerable
Rebecca: oh, no I don't think so!
Timothy: i think so
Rebecca: are we talking about the same petrified here?
Timothy: yes we are
there is only one definition of petrified
Rebecca: no, there are two definitions
1. to convert into stone or a stony substance.
2. to benumb or paralyze with astonishment, horror, or other strong emotion: I was petrified with fear.
3. to make rigid or inert; harden; deaden: The tragedy in his life petrified his emotions.
I meant number 1.
Timothy: i meant number 1
Rebecca: a petrified roll is one in which the organic material has been replaced with rock material
a petrified roll = roll made of rock
rock is not edible
petrified is not edible
Timothy: what is salt
Timothy: if salt is not edible, why are you craving it
Rebecca: you got me
Rebecca: you win
Timothy: (that was REALLY fun)
petrified is edible
Rebecca: good, I'm glad you liked it!

So, we were with Rebecca's family in Utah for our first Christmas together. One of the reasons was that Rebecca's brother, Joseph, was getting married (to Lacey) the week before in Manti. It was a terrific wedding!
It was c-o-l-d!
Half of the ward Christmas program consisted of the Olson family and their wood.
For Christmas Eve, we travelled to Ephraim, where Rebecca's dad's family live. We swerved off the road barely not missing a deer and had to push the van back onto the road. I, of course, decided to document the event instead of help!
Every year, there are performances from each family. Rebecca's family didn't have anything prepared, so I decided to show off a newly acquired stupid-human-trick. Click on the picture to watch!
Christmas was excellent.

The drive to the Canyon was gorgeous. The road was lined with deep green pine trees and autumn-yellow aspens. It reminded me a lot of the Montana scenery I grew up in. Here's a shot out of the RV windshield of the entrance to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon State Park. The Canyon itself was still a few miles away, but this was sure pretty anyway.
And here's our first shot of the canyon itself.
Amazing. It just struck us speechless. We learned later in the lodge that when most people get their first glimpses of the Grand Canyon, they won't talk above a whisper. Why? Don't know. Perhaps it's just so awesome that it makes us feel like we need to be reverent.
Getting close to the edge of the rim took a bit of courage! When we looked down towards the bottom and we saw huge trees and enormous boulders looking like specks, it made me realize how far down that was, and how incredibly tiny I am! And if that weren't enough to remind us just how deep it was, there was a cold and surprisingly strong wind that blew up from the canyon. It felt like we were looking over the brink into a completely different world. What a cool place to spend one of our first days as a married couple!
We decided to take the shortest way to the bottom--straight down, and then straight back up. Here we are reaching the top again.
...We didn't actually hike into the canyon until the next day. :)
We hiked all the way down to the bridge at the bottom of this ravine, and that wasn't even close to the Colorado River. This side canyon feeds into another side canyon which feeds into the main canyon. We're going to come back and do it all again someday!
