  1. These are all great! I’m so glad you shared them all because I haven’t read all of them yet. I’ve got some reading to do!

  2. I have to get reading. We’ve been talking about seeing the Grand Canyon, so that’s the first read on my list.

    • Colleen Lanin, The Travel Mama says:

      I hope you find my tips on the Grand Canyon helpful, Jen! A lot of love went into that post!

  3. Ellen Lanin says:

    We recommended your Grand Canyon blog to a professional friend who said she was going there for spring break recently. The next time we spoke with her she told us she took all your advice, plus your site’s write up on Zion National Park. She and her family feel it really helped to know what to expect.

    • Colleen Lanin, The Travel Mama says:

      Always glad to hear our advice has been helpful! Thank you for sharing with your friend!

  4. You really have had a lot of great adventures and trips. That picture of the Grand Canyon is very spectacular so I will have to read your post if I ever go there.
