Summer Road Trip Continued: Grand Canyon

We're picking up where we left off and entering the GRAND Canyon! (You can read our first stop in our summer road trip here)


The South Rim was absolutely amazing.


I have always heard that pictures just can't express how stunning it is in person,


and this is true.


We hiked down the canyon and stopped for some lunch while admiring its natural beauty. 




One must be careful when deciding how far to walk down because the hike back up is so much more difficult (and hot)!


We were even greeted by some natives while sight-seeing. 




Can you believe this little river helped create this natural beauty?

After a long day, we bid our farewells...





Until next time, Grand Canyon...
 

Our next stop will be Four Corners, USA.

I was there, about 11 years ago. It was SO hot and dry, I had a bloody nose everyday, our dogs got blisters on all of their feet. After just two days, we decided to drive north to Colorado b/c it was so hard on the dogs. It was a great place to visit, but I'd never want to live there! I'll just enjoy it from the photos and memories!!

So glad you got to go too the Grand Canyon. It's quite a wonder of the world, as far as I'm concerned. We lived in southern Arizona and our trips to the Grand Canyon were always a highlight of our time in that unique state. Susan

Seeing your post made me want to watch one of my favorite movies last night: GRAND CANYON with Kevin Klein!

HI SHERI! Thank you my beautiful friend, for coming to visit my blog! Yes, my visit in California was super, spending my time with my family. I was not able however,to see my husband's family or visit friends or even the beach, but the time I did spend with my family was super precious.

THIS ONE WILD AND PRECIOUS LIFE is just that....ONE, WILD and PRECIOUS. Let us find what our passions are and use them to serve IN LOVE, one another. And may Nel find the balance she will need to live her new married life to the best.

HUGGING YOU my dear friend! Anita
