Discovering Bride Canyon

“Every bride is beautiful. It’s like newborn babies or puppies. They can’t help it.”
Emme Rollins, Dear Rockstar

I was about to write a whole bunch of stuff about weddings and marriage and losing weight to fit into at least 1 of the 4 wedding dresses that currently reside in my closet and about how no, you don’t really need to be married, per se, to have a life-long commitment to someone but deep down I’m the kind of girl who gets sick to death of men talking to me like I’m single and such and really how much would that change with a ring on my finger and a paper with my signature on it next to his I mean we have a National Parks pass with our signatures on it and a mortgage with the same so how much does it matter if he sees me or calls me girlfriend why on earth would it matter to change that to fiance and subsequently wife? ”

What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;

So yeah.

Here’s the point: I’ve been up and down the Gemini Bridges road more times than I can count and I’ve never taken this turn-off.

Today, the map [made by my once-again-useful Orbital View map via the Avenza app on my phone] was the guide to finding arches that I had heretofore reckoned. Thus, whence this arch doth appear on thine map, thou shalt herein turn up the canyon from which springs said arch of one or two nameless natures.

Thus it was that we navigated up a canyon that upon further research we doth herein discovered to be entitled after the name of ‘Bride Canyon’.

[Aside: a hilarious discovery as wherein this said canyon I had thusly jested that herein and we shall have the option to wed in this very same locale now discovered if only to our own eyes. So it came to pass that my love reminded me thusly that this state in which said canyon resides is Utah, aka. ‘the Motherland’, and would require more consequential wedding requirements than the ‘homeland’ of Colorado.]

Yes. We did find an arch. We actually found two. And some radically carved out canvas. [Sorry Matt didn’t get any awesome pics. This is a phone pano via. moi]
