    I have learned to schedule our vacation at the perfect time of the year weather wise. We have already been to the Grand Canyon on our vacation in the middle of April. Heat is my enemy, the Grand Canyon is in the high 70’s that time of year and not so crowded. I get anxious in crowds, afraid of getting knocked off balance. On a long driving trip we take our time, stopping around 5 o clock for the night. I also make sure our trips have a lot of things you can see driving, not so much walking. Last year was Mt. Rushmore, this year Grand Canyon and next year Yellowstone. I make reservations and plan the trip a year in advance. Our next trip to Yellowstone will be in September, children are back in school so it won’t be so crowded. You also can get some better hotel prices if your slightly off season. Potter
