Aug 20, 2014 - Grand Canyon, AZ

Don and Evelyn met us early and we took the red bus out to Hermit's Rest, stopping at viewpoints on the way out and back. Then we had lunch at Bright Angel Lodge. Turned out to be a good plan, since the rains came in the afternoon and obscured the canyon again. Late in the afternoon, with some clearing, Ken went out to shoot the sunset. Even though it rained on him one more time, he was able to get not only sunset, but another fantastic DOUBLE RAINBOW!

Aug 19, 2014 - Grand Canyon, AZ

Arrived at Grand Canyon Tuesday afternoon in a rainstorm - clouds were hanging low, obscuring the canyon. Later, the skies cleared and we were able to visit Pike's Pass and Mather Point. Ken even ran into someone he knew from Lockheed outside the Visitor Center.

Aug 12, 2014 - Grand Canyon by Helicopter

We treated ourselves and took a helicopter ride out from Vegas to the Grand Canyon. It started with a limo ride from the hotel to the private airport. We then flew over the Hoover Dam on the way to a champagne lunch at the Grand Canyon. That guy gets everywhere! On the return flight we flew down the strip which was a great way to see Vegas. http:/www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4xozjc_jUs

Jul 30, 2014 - Grand Canyon NP, south rim

We did a day trip to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. We drove north on Hwy 89 up through Oak Creek Canyon and up the Mogollon rim (pronounced mu-gee-on) through the largest stand of Ponderosa Pine in the world and into Flagstaff, AZ. Continuing north out of Flagstaff on Hwy 180 then onto Hwy 64, we arrived at the rim. As with every time I've stood on the rim, I felt a sense of reverence and awe as I gaze upon God's handiwork. We visited the Hopi House and made a few souvenir purchases. We enjoyed a tasty lunch at the historic El Tovar...

Jul 3, 2014 - Four Corners and Grand Canyon 2014

The first stop of this trip consisted of 324 miles from Buena Vista, CO to The Four Corners Monument in Arizona. It marks the quadripoint in the Southwestern United States where the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah meet. As a kid learning Geography, I always wanted to go see the place where you could be in four states at one time so it was pretty cool to finally get to do that. There was a small fee of $5 per person for entry which goes to the Navajo Indians. The second stop consisted of 209 miles to the Grand Canyon. That...

Jul 1, 2014 - Grand Canyon North Rim, Arizona

We arrived at the North Rim around 1:00, saw a heard of bison on the drive just inside the park and then climbed to the Angel Point next to the Lodge, cabins, restaurant and Visitor Center. The park provided refreshing spring water and ice machines so we filled up our water bottles. On the hike to Angel Point I hugged a few boulders and Bill wanted to climb up them! I was having anxiety attacks and lacking oxygen. The view was breathtaking, literally. We had a beautiful warm day. The trees provided cool shade. We then decided to walk the...

Jun 4, 2014 - Grand Canyon

The train leaves for the Canyon at 9:30. At 9:00 there is a Cowboy gun show at the depot which the kids didn't want to miss. The RV park had kennel services so we put Marley there for the day. We aren't sure how he would take a whole day in the motorhome by himself. Sugar doesn't hear and just wants to sleep. We knew she would be okay. She is a veteran at traveling with us. The train goes 65 miles and takes 2 hours and 15 minutes. They have lots of entertainment and play games which makes the trip go by fast. We arrived around noon. We...

Jun 2, 2014 - Grand Canyon take 2

Today we headed out early and spent most of our time exploring the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. The drive along the canyon is fantastic with heaps of places to stop off and see it at different angles. It is amazing how in such short distances it looks so different. Again it is so hard to describe this amazing place in words and the photos do it no justice. After a while Sam overcame his fear and stood at the edge of the viewing areas to see what he'd been missing. Along the way we saw deer at the side of the road, they were huge. We also...

Jun 1, 2014 - Yes, it is definitely Grand

Wow, what a day we've had today. We headed out early, keen to get to the Grand Canyon. On our way there we stopped at a zoo that we had read about called Bearizona. It was fantastic, you drive through the first part and the animals are wandering around and there is a narration that comes through the radio in your car. They warn you to keep windows closed and doors locked when near bears and wolves! We saw heaps of Bison, Long Horned Sheep, wolves and black bears - it was really cool watching a bear walk straight past the car only a metre...

A natural formation of rocks and mountains. This place is a world heritage and is well protected place with lots of care given to the entire ecosystem around it.
