Grand Canyon from the south rim
So a few weeks ago, there we were at the grand canyon. In recent years, we'd flown over it, driven past it and been turned back from it by a thunder storm. But we hadn't made it a destination and we were finally there!
I don't think anyone could be disappointed by the grand canyon. Its so breathtaking. I have to say, in some ways, the park was even better than I thought. The wild life was amazing!
I actually make TOG turn around and drive back because I saw this elk hanging out in the forest. The was another elk behind him that doesn't show in this photo.
These two were the first thing we saw as we turned into the park. I'm pretty sure the calf was quite fresh.
The birds in the canyon were amazing! Large and small, they floated on the air currents and put on a display of fearlessness as we peered gingerly over the edges!
Like most deer in national parks, these were not at all worried about human visitors!
Our visit to the Grand Canyon was pretty awesome. We stayed in Williams, Arizona which was really convenient to the canyon and had all the conveniences with none of the crowds of the national parks!
Thanks, Arizona! That was awesome!
