The Grand Canyon

grand11-2 grand10-2Everyone says that the Grand Canyon seems surreal when first viewed. The first impression is of standing in front of a movie screen.We arrived late in the evening, just in time to catch the sunset the first day, which was fairly impressive, although diminished by the haze in the air.

Spending 3 nights on the South Rim, we had ample opportunity to hike both the South Kaibab and Bright Angel trails quite a distance into the canyon for quite a ways, although we weren’t able to venture to the Colorado River because of time and heat considerations.   Even still, the hikes were still interesting and filled with sights such as donkeys climbing out of the canyon with their loads.grand9-2 grand8-2 grand7-2  grand5-2 grand4-2 grand2-2 grand1-2 grand11 grand10 grand8 grand7 grand6 grand4 grand3 grand2 grand1
