We set off over the rivers and through the woods, though the song says to Grandmother's house we go, rather we the grandparents go to the Grandkids for Thanksgiving. You would have thought that having gone over the Yakima, Columbia, Umatilla, Grande Ronde, Malheur, Snake (twice), Boise, Raft, Bear, Sevier, Virgin (at least five times), Muddy, Colorado, Big Sandy, Santa Maria, Hassayampa, Agua Fria, New, and the Salt Rivers, we would have had many pictures to choose from for my own choice of theme Over the River. Alas, when you are determined to reach your destination on a deadline, stopping for pictures just doesn't happen.
|The plan was to stop and take new pictures of this bridge at over the Snake at Twin Falls.|
|We could have sidetracked for a fresh view of the Blue Bridge at Tri-Cities'|
But alas, the only picture stop we made was this viewpoint over the Colorado River just after we crossed the bridge (that I had intended to take pictures of) into Arizona.
For my header I am choosing to show something of the reason for our wanting to reach Phoenix before Sunday, We came to cheer on our son-in-law Greg as he completed his third Ironman Triathlon. If we had stopped to take pictures of all those rivers we would have arrived about when he crossed the finish line.
