Grand Canyon, Arizona
The Grand Canyon was, of course, spectacular. My parents had told us that in order to really ‘see’ the canyon, you have to go inside it. They were right! We allowed some time for a short day hike, but it wasn’t enough. The canyon is really, really big, with lots to see and do. In fact, our visit inspired us to return in May to walk from the South Rim to the North Rim and back—‛rim to rim to rim,’ as local hikers say. The trip will take us six days (plus three days resting and relaxing in Las Vegas).
