Our Adventure:

The Grand Canyon certainly is grand.

Mather Point

The first glance over Mather Point took my breath away. This is another location you must experience to truly grasp the size and beauty.

Grand Canyon

The section we visited today is part of the South Rim of the Canyon. The vast expanse provides much to look at. The colorful rocks go on for miles and miles. In spots, you can view the Colorado River that carved this enormous, mile-deep Canyon. The river looks tiny in comparison, but it’s racing, muddy waters created this beautiful destination.

Geology

If you are interested in all things geological, the Grand Canyon provides layer upon layer of rocks. Also, the formations are amazingly epic. Some areas are fenced off, but there are areas where you can walk right out and overlook from the edge.

Last year, we missed this stop due to bad weather holding us up a couple days. I am glad we were able to make it this year.

Not sure where tomorrow will bring us, but today was excellent! Can’t wait to see what’s in store next.
