By the way we went to the Grand Canyon

That was a few months ago.  It was warm then.  And sunny.  Memories …

Grand Canyon 7418

I have 4 videos.

#1 The View From Look Out Point

#2  East end of the canyon, from the rim.  With a bird.

#3  Mount Humphreys, briefly.

#4  The Meteor Crater near Winslow, Arizona.  Yes, it’s the one from Starman.

I would like to point out that the publicly owned Grand Canyon cost $25 for one car up to one week, whereas the privately owned Meteor Crater cost $30 for 2 people for a one hour tour.  If you miss the tour then you can only look from the Visitors’ Center deck (still $15 per person).

The Husband and I recommend staying in the Grand Canyon Village, but not actually on the rim which was crowded all day and night with people walking.  We were very happy with the Maswick Lodge which is about 1/4 mile from the rim, quiet and fairly secluded.  I have many (many, many) beautiful pictures from the Canyon.  But these are just the Best Of.

A great trip all around; I hope to go back again someday.

    I love the canyon and it is Grand isn’t it. Hope you got a chance to watch the sunset over the canyon. Magnificent…the word doesn’t do it justice. Last time we were there several years ago, the wind was so strong we had to hold onto our toddlers for fear they would fly away. And it was very chilly! And the crater is fun too. Have you been to Jerome, AZ? Another great place to spend the day…walking of course!

      We were most surprised by how quiet the canyon is once you’re down in it.
