The trip started off a day late due to my cold, that I still hadn't really kicked but I was too excited to cancel. My dad picked my up at 6 AM and we hit the road. A front was blowing through and the weather looked menacing. Made it halfway up the Spencer Trail before bailing as the smell of moisture was in the air and we wanted to get of the clay before rain turned it into an ice rink. Drove up the Kaibab Plateau where there was three inches of snow on the ground. Got a motel room in Kanab and then drove out to the Coral Pink Sand Dunes. That's day 1's abridged version.
