As members know, we normally will have a After Convention Trip to another interesting site or locale, for those wanting to see more of the area. This year, we'll be seeing Bryce Canyon National Park, Kanab, Utah and the area on the north rim of the Grand Canyon that Grey visited, and then the Lodge on the North Rim, Grand Canyon National Park. Look for more details soon.
