I recently visited the south rim of the Grand Canyon (April 25) on an unexpected trip from our home in Texas to visit family in California. I was surprised when it started to snow as we parked in the Grand Canyon parking lot. The snow made visiting the Grand Canyon extra special because I don't get a chance to see a lot of snow.

My husband and I stayed in our RV at the Williams/Grand Canyon KOA that night. When we arrived there, I ran 15 miles on a dirt path near the RV park. The morning that we left, I was surprised to see snow outside when I opened the RV door. My first thought was to hurry back inside to tell my husband, but then I decided that it would be more fun for him to be surprised like I did so I kept my little secret - that was hard for me, but I was glad that I did.
