Earlier this year, Kat and I decided to learn about the geology of Arizona. We would visit various sites of geological interest and culminate our lesson with a trip to the Grand Canyon! This trip came to us a lot sooner than we had expected however, when a friend presented us with a golden opportunity. Her uncle is an astronomer who was going to be attending the annual Grand Canyon star party. She was going camping with him for the weekend and invited us to join them!
In the week leading up to our fantastic camping trip, I wanted to learn a bit more about our destination. Since this was going to be Kat's first camping trip, I also wanted to instill some survival skills and wildlife observing habits. So, we had a week filled with Grand Canyon activities and lessons, as well as some survival games to prepare us for our camping adventure!
