Is it the Journey or the Destination?

Which one creates the most anticipation, excitement or pleasure for you?  Which is more important?  Is it the journey or the destination?

I have to admit, when planning a trip, I often tend to focus on the destination.
But many times I’ve been surprised and pleased, with the beauty and inspiration of the  journey.

All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination. ~Earl Nightingale
The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same.  Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination. ~Don Williams, Jr.

Today I share with you a gallery of photos from one of the most beautiful journeys I’ve ever experienced.
 This journey began at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, and took us close to Zion National Park.
For a good portion of the time, we were on Route 89 in Arizona and Utah.
This journey could definitely be a destination!

I soon realized that no journey carries one far unless, as it extends into the world around us, it goes an equal distance into the world within. ~ Lillian Smith

Thanks for traveling with me on this amazing journey!
