This was the longest trip (in duration and distance) we had been on since moving to Prescott, AZ. While the trip was good and I enjoyed the company of relatives, I have to say there really is no place like home. By the time we drove around Granite Mountain (which we can see from our neighborhood), it felt like we had been gone forever and I was so happy to be back home.
