Hard to get into the Swing of things after Vacationing!

It has been a bit difficult to get back in the swing of things since our vacation.
Plus trying to get kids ready for school!
I think I need more time off.
So I will continue to relive our vacation with anyone willing to look at the photos!
We took a tour of the Glen Canyon Dam in Page, Arizona. 
I cannot remember Lake Powell being this low---this was a bit of a shocker to me since the last time I was there. 
It was well worth the tour to the bottom of the dam. 
My husband had never been to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon so this was the reason for the vacation in reality.   
We had been lucky not to see any wild fires until we go to the Kaibab National Forest on the way to the Grand Canyon. 
A bit disturbing to see this on the side of the road. 
Made it to the North Rim!

It is a wonder of nature!!  
Off in the distance you can see the South Rim and the buildings there but due to not only the fires on the north side there was a huge fire at the South Rim so visibility was not as great as I had hoped. 
Angel Window on one of our hikes through the North Rim. 
On the closest peak were two hikers that we could see at the very top with the binoculars.
They had climbed up the back side and left a note at the spot we were at to send any photos to them if people happened to catch them with a photo.  
Needless to say my poor beat up camera could not perform. 
We were lucky enough to see a wolf, a coyote and a huge herd of bison.
It was hard too leave and think of coming home.  
I am not sure if any of you are like me but once I get out I can only think about my next trip for quite awhile which means difficult to settle back into the routine!
But to the routine I must go....
