Following our 4 day space trip orbiting planet Wanderlust, the YD roadster took us southward toward the marvels of the natural world...modern plumbing in the desert! Oh and the Grand Canyon.

UPDATE 2: Life is a Highway If you haven't heard, we're on a road trip! And not any road trip, the Great American YogaDork Road Trip, and we're posting from the road!
