While planning my trips to attend Phan Cons that
were held out West, I often extended my stay in
the area (well, sort of) for several days. I figured
while I'm out there I might as well tour the area
and see as many of the natural sites as I could as
my chances of going out there again were pretty

After Phan Con '95 which was held in July at
Boise, ID, I decided that Crater Lake was
something I wanted to see. It looked like quite a
drive from Boise but it was only a few inches on
the map. Mount Saint Helens was in the area too,
and only a few inches away on the map from
Crater Lake, I'd go there also. I wound up putting
over 2,000 miles on the rental car. I was so
impressed with this area, that I took my wife out
there the following September.

Phan Con '97 was held in October at Holloman
AFB.  I talked my wife into going with me. "We
could make a vacation out of it. I'll take you to
Vegas (she's never been there) via the Grand
Canyon." After the Event we headed north to the
Grand Canyon South Rim. Awesome place to see!

We also took a trip to the North Rim of the Grand
Canyon in 2004 via the sites in Northern New
Mexico. The Southwest is an awesome place to see.
We've taken numerous trips out there since our

June 2007 we took a trip to the National Parks of
Southern Utah. Bryce Canyon was one of them.
