An unexpected visit to the mansion (and home) of J. Sterling Morton, of Morton salt fame. Morton was responsible for the Arbor Day observation, and his home in Nebraska City, Nebraska, is appropriately called Arbor Lodge.
A daytrip by car from Las Vegas, Nevada, to the spectacular South Rim of the Grand Canyon. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity was provided by the wonderful National Park System in the USA. Breathtaking views and updated amenities, plus a visit to the historic El Tovar Hotel in Grand Canyon Village.
