MoFo Day 17: Best wrap ever

As I mentioned before, I'm currently on vacation in the southwest US. I haven't been keeping up with my MoFo posts because I did a poor job of planning ahead and the best meals I had all week were Goober PB&J sandwiches. For those who don't know, Goober is peanut butter and jelly in the same jar. I know, it's ridiculously lazy, but Goober has earned its place as a travel staple in my book. On multiple camping and bike touring trips, I've found myself in a small-town grocery store looking for meal options. A loaf of vegan wheat bread and a jar of Goober costs $7 and makes 10 sandwiches that will fuel any activity and won't spoil (I'm sure eventually they will, but not in the three day span I've ever carried Goober and bread in my bike panniers or suitcase).

Anyway, this post was not intended to be a love letter to Goober. Today I went hiking in the Grand Canyon. Afterward, we stopped at a coffee/deli stand at the visitors center. I looked in the "grab and go" sandwich case purely out of boredom, not because I thought I'd actually find a vegan sandwich. Much to my surprise, the case was full of veggie hummus wraps (likely because by 3pm, everyone had bought the meat ones). I was initially suspicious that a wrap of tortilla, hummus, carrot and lettuce could be good. But this was delicious! So delicious, in fact, that I scarfed it down before I thought to take a picture. So instead, I present you with a photo of trash.

And a picture of the Grand Canyon, as seen from halfway down the South Kaibab Trail
