|A scenic walk along the road while letting the cars take a break!|
The next day we dropped our car off at the shop to be fixed. It ended up taking extra time because they lost the part that they special ordered for us! So do yourself a favor and don't have your car break done around there! We had to change our hiking plans since we were going to do a one way hike down into the canyon and then hike out (going down again instead of back up) another trail and to the second car. Instead we hiked up the Tropic Trail which actually isn't in the National Park but also gets into the canyon. We used it both ways, it was hard but fun to see the canyon from the inside as well as the top. Pete was a big grump starting out because he had just started to fall asleep.

Picture from the rim walkWe headed off to Salt Lake in the afternoon once we got our car back. We had Pete ride with mom and dad for the last leg of the journey so we could stop and see Phil's brother Thomas in Provo. We had dinner and went to a comic book store and checked out his apartment, before heading up to Salt Lake.
Pete doing what he does best: Playing in the Dirt!
