This was another of my "moments!" It was even grander than I expected! To think that this is a natural wonder of the world, with so much history trapped inside the layers of rock. To put it in perspective the pilot pointed out a tiny rock formation at the top of the imperial canyon- that tiny, minuscule rock was actually 30 storeys in height
It is so cold here- with the minimum last night down to -7 and today, no more than 2 degrees max! I'm loving the snow on the ground and the way it fell on the mountain tops. It's really fun dressing for the snow and cold but I hate unlayering every time we go inside! After the flight, we hung out at the sports bar inside the national park where the boys watched football games all day while the girls sat around talking. It was lots of fun to get out of the cold and just enjoy each other's company without being rushed to see everything!
In the afternoon, a group of us walked back to the grand canyon to watch the sunset. Allison and I decided to take it to the extreme by taking off our tops for the iconic "topless pic!" It was so damn cold! But it had to happen haha I was definitely out of my comfort zone and a memory of the trip that will last forever!
Tonight, a group of us rugged up with jumpers, jackets, beanies, scarfs, socks and everything else to keep warm as we walked by the canyons to enjoy a nice dinner at the Arizona Room. I had salmon, brown rice and veg. It was so nice to finally have a real meal- I'm missing veggies so badly! After dinner we went back to Shannon's room for a few drinking games. It was so funny playing bi-kerk, Cheers Governor, Clap That and Drink Driver. We purposely didn't have a late night in preparation for Vegas tomorrow!
Our stay at the Grand Canyon exceeded my expectation once again. I'm very much looking forward to Vegas but don't want to say goodbye to the friends we've made- as some are leaving us in Vegas! Boo!
Goodnight from the Grand Canyon xx
