For those who have not seen the Grand Canyon in Arizona firsthand, you will be amazed and will stand there in awe.
How can one take in such beauty and peacefulness? It’s certainly worth a trip.
We drove from Flagstaff, Arizona to the South Rim of the Canyon. One can catch the tour train dedicated for the canyon as well. I think the drive itself was fairly peaceful and picturesque – sort of like driving on the plains and wondering where the Canyon begins. You won’t notice it until arriving and then you see the beauty unfold below you.
The National Park Service mentions a “unique combinations of geologic color and erosional forms decorate a canyon that is 277 river miles (446km) long, up to 18 miles (29km) wide, and a mile (1.6km) deep. Grand Canyon overwhelms our senses through its immense size.” The park service has excellent information at https://www.nps.gov/grca/index.htm.
The South Rim is open all year but the North Rim is seasonal.
There are many other sites to explore while in the Grand Canyon region so if one has time it’s a great opportunity.
I appreciate your riding along. I’ll provide more photos in my next post.
Love and Blessings,
