During a trip to Las Vegas, NV last year, my family decided to take a 4-hour drive to the beautiful state of Arizona to take a looksie of the Grand Canyon. My mom has been wanting to go and we’ve been putting it off because it is a good 10-hour drive from the bay. The weather was WARM, even warmer than Las Vegas so we made sure to pack a lot of sun screen and hats. Even the drive up was beautiful, we stopped by for a stretch break and saw the beautiful view above.
When we arrived at the Grand Canyon National Park, we stopped at the gate to purchase a vehicle pass. The entrance fee was $30, and it was good for 7 days. What a deal!
We parked and started walking up the visitors center. Everything was marked and going around was easy. You can either take the bus around to see the spots or walk around. We decided to take a walk.
The rocks (or I guess boulders?) was massive and I had to take photos. BTW don’t mind my not suitable for the occasion foot wear (it is a result of poor planning). Here’s a snap, Tada!
Look at this rock wall, interesting eh? Nature sure is beautiful!
We got lucky with the weather. The skies were clear and the sun lit the Grand Canyon beautfully. I was at awe at how beautiful the view was. Every couple of steps and the view of the canyon changes. I probably took hundreds of pictures there. Here are some of my faves:
You can see how GRAND the Grand Canyon is compared to those tiny people. Whoa!
IT IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL!
After hours of roaming around, we had food at their little grocery store. The sun was setting and we started our 4-hour trip back to Las Vegas.
I really wish we could stay more days and explore the canyon more. I bet I have not even fully experienced the Grand Canyon yet. I will save that for another trip. This is definitely not the last time I visit this wonderful place. See you later, Arizona!
