I'm back! On Thursday, Sept. 10, my friends and I embarked on a journey through a big portion of the southwestern United States. Our farthest point west was the Grand Canyon. The week and a half trip was filled with natural wonders, baseball games and incredibly fun cities like Austin, TX and New Orleans.

Check out some of the photos from our trip in the gallery below.

This road trip was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Wouldn't you know we are already planning next year's trip. Thanks for following along.
