We never planned on seeing the Grand Canyon, but finding out that it would be a slight detour on our way from Phoenix, and knowing we might not get this chance again soon, we decided to put our National Parks Pass to use again this year, and stop at....THE GRAND CANYON!
From Phoenix, we drove to Flagstaff, and from there we followed the signs to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Wow! This was the most crowded of any Park we'd been to and we would soon find out why.
Wow! We walked along the overlook trail, with this amazing view unfolding along the way.
See those people out there on what looks like death's corridor? Those are all my loved ones. I'm sure it was more terrifying to watch them than to be with them. My heart weakened with each step that took them closer to the edge.
Drove to a few other viewpoints on our way out of the Grand Canyon.
Eventually made it to the Highway through an Indian Reservation that would connect us to Page, Arizona, our half-way point. The drive added only 2 hours to our already long drive, but it was worth it to see this!
