    Ok, first of all the title of these trips are “Adventures” by Disney. I wanted to make sure that as a Vacation planner I was taking every opportunity to be thus, Adventurous. Even by the end of the trip both Annette and Beci were too, I just took it one step further. the view for me from this spot was not as scary as for others looking at me. It was an amazing canyon. And as for the Deer, it was jumping, snorting and running…right towards us…without provocation…no lie!
