How long has it been since you were at the Grand Canyon?
We’ve been there twice, the last time at the beginning of this month! And to be honest, my toes stayed curled for a long time after we left because of the sudden drop looming next to the path. 🙂
As you can probably guess, I snapped a few pics while we were there.
This statue was in front of the restaurant where we ate. Don’t you love it?
To be honest, I’m a people/critter watcher first and a canyon watcher second. This pair looked like a father-son to me. I loved the way they were recording their time together.
This was one of the park rangers. She didn’t stop and chat (sadly) and she didn’t offer me a ride, sigh, but she was friendly. Nice horse, too, huh?
We watched this guy sun himself on the edge of the canyon for several minutes.
And this speedy character entertained several of us lurkers.
This is an artist’s studio there at the edge of the canyon. Imagine spending your days painting God’s handiwork. (And hoping you don’t sleep walk off the edge.)
I did get a few (!) shots of the canyon. God really carved out a beautiful place out there.
Aren’t the muted colors gorgeous?
I decided I couldn’t climb any higher on the rim train at one point (that deep hole was making me dizzy) so I sat on a bench and waited while G-Man went on up.
I met several people while I was there. One couple was Sam and Rebecca from Ohio. They asked where I was from and I answered, “Cleveland, OKLAHOMA. When I say Cleveland, most people say ask if it’s the one in Ohio.”
Rebecca laughed. “When you start talking, they know it’s not Ohio.”
“I have an accent???”
This is the place where my kids hopped around the last time we were at the Grand Canyon. Yeah, my toes curled then, too.
So when was the last time you were at the Grand Canyon? Well, it’s time to go back.
Not that it changes much in a span of a few years, except for the manmade stuff. But most peoples’ memories are never as beautiful as the real thing. Head out that way soon and send me a picture of your favorite part.
I’ll love it.
