Destination, America (Grand Canyon)

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

This is the second installment of Destination America. There are so many beautiful places here and The Grand Canyon has got to be the best place I have visited so far. It is amazing. Truly surreal. When I look back at the pictures it looks as if the background can't be real, but it is. Ryan and I flew in to Las Vegas. Not that we are big on gambling or crazy night life, but I just wanted to see it once in my life. We had our hotel there, but didn't spend much time there. We rented a car and everyday we drove to a different destination. One day we did the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. Then we hit Red Rock Canyon and the Valley of Fire. The next day was Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. The last day was the Grand Canyon. We packed in a lot in one trip. We didn't want to miss a thing. We fully intend to get back there, but if we don't we have seen it all:) Having been to all of those places I know that the one place I would love to plan an extended stay is in the Grand Canyon. I want to stay in the valley and hike and do everything else it has to offer. It is a breathtaking place.

This trip was also taken during spring break, in April. We had the most beautiful weather. Way up in the mountains it was chilly though. Still spotted with ice and snow, but down in the valleys it was nice and warm. You have to be careful and drink lots of water. You can dehydrate so quickly out there.

It was an amazing trip. There is so much to see. We ran around like kids, climbing here and exploring there. We were tired when we got back to our hotel each night. Ryan was really awesome with all that driving, he never complained. Can't wait to go to Yellowstone!!
