From Beach to Canyon

It took me some time to figure out why Windows Movie Maker was crashing and to make it stop (hint: del qedit.dll), and then some more time to download proper background music over the hollow reed which this hotel calls an Internet connection. But finally, here it is, video from the first leg of our trip:

Today, we had a fantastic but tiring time at the Grand Canyon, thanks to American Dream Tours* and our guide, Daniel Maust. Photos will be up later, even though they don't do it justice. There is absolutely no substitute for being here in person.

Dinner: Yesterday's leftover chili and corn salad over brown rice. We thought about ordering a pizza, but it just seemed like too much work.

* Yes, I know their web site sucks. Their vans aren't pretty either: plain white, with the company name and DOT number painted in small block letters on the front doors. It's a small, family-run business, and they don't spend money on extravagances. They just do one thing very well.

Love it love it love it! Such a cool video and love the music overlaid over it (though I object to the lyrics ;-) ). Jonathan Coulter -- will have to check out more of his music now that I know that in addition to snarky Code Monkey, he also writes beautiful montage music. Thanks for going through all the trouble to make a video that made me dance as I watched it, and made me feel a bit of what you guys must have felt as you travelled from beach to canyon!
