So as promised, we went to the Grand Canyon today! Oh yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about! Totally sweet! We went to the south rim first and checked out some of the views (and some adorable little rock squirrels!-- I made friends.) Then we hit a few more observation points before making the trek out to Desert View where the watchtower resides
After leaving the Canyon, we drove out the east entrance on Hwy 64 and ended up driving through the painted desert for some time. Let me just say... they really aren't kidding. It seriously looks like someone actually painted the desert into existence. Unbelievable. (Um, also totally desolate on a little side note).
We eventually drove out of the painted desert and into the regular old desert (still pretty awesome... just not quite as colorful).
I'm gonna continue this little story on the next entry... just to break it up correctly between the map pins (yes I'm slightly OCD... I can't help it), BUT not before this sections quote of the day!!!! Yess!!
Amanda: "There are like 12 cars behind us"
[2 cars pass from behind us]
Mom: "where are the rest of the cars? that's only 2"
Amanda: "well that's 2 cars, and one's pulling a trailer.... so if you put that 1 trailer in front of the 2 cars, it makes 12"
Mom: [no comment]
Amanda: "hand me that smart water... I think my IQ's fallen"
to be continued.......
