When planning our Rollin’ on the River road trip in 2011, we thought it would be fun to spend a night in a plantation. Based on positive online reviews, we decided on Nottoway Plantation, right on the banks of the Mississippi in White Castle, LA (we combined our stay with a highly worthwhile swamp tour near Breaux Bridge, LA). Our stay in Nottoway ended up exceeding all expectations and to this day remains one of our favorite hotel experiences (our room was in the Boys’ Wing, part of the historically intact 1859 mansion). Room rates include breakfast and a guided tour of the estate. With a pool and a restaurant Nottoway really has everything you need on-site, and after the daytime tour groups leave you feel like you own the place.

- 07.24.21 : Got to explore the recently-reopened Antelope Canyon near Page, AZ. It’s one of those sites that lives up to the hype. One benefit of Covid restrictions is that our tour group was only five people plus guide.07.24.21 : Checked out the overview of Horseshoe Bend the day after we kayaked around it on the water.07.23.21 : Kayaked down a gentle 10 miles of the Colorado River from Horseshoe Bend to Lee’s Ferry, AZ. We got back hauled up the river by @kayakthecolorado.07.22.21 : Explored a secret little permit-only area of Vermillion Cliffs National Monumenr. No, it’s not “The Wave” but it’s similar and we were the only people to be found for miles around, so it was even better.07.21.21 : Hiked 10 miles round trip down the North Kaibab Trail to Roaring Springs. The 3,300 feet of elevation gain in the heat was tough, but it’s an incredible trail. This is the Redwall Bridge about 2.8 miles and 2,100 feet down from the rim.07.20.21 : Saw some crazy rain and thunderstorm action while at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Second pic was later that evening with clear skies.
