In August we drove from San Diego to Colorado to drop our son off at college. My wife and I, now new empty nester's, continued the road trip with visits to Canyonlands, Arches, Colorado National Monument, Moab, Zion and Vegas. It was a bittersweet trip with so many mixed emotions. Very sad driving away after the last goodbyes yet very exicited for him, and my wife and I, and what lies ahead. 10 days of incredible scenery and bonding helped transition my wife and I into this time in our life.
