Unfortunately, I have no photos to go with the theme this week.

So I offer a photo of my great-grandmother, Hattie Chapin Balding, taken in front of the ruins of a Hopi dwelling on a trip to the Grand Canyon in the 1920s.

Before my cousin discovered an old family album, we had no idea our Mema was such a traveler.

This is a Sepia Saturday post. Head over there for other really wonderful old photos.

She must have been really adventurous. To have gone traveling in those days was something. Don't you wish you could ask her about this trip? I'll bet she'd have some great stories.
