Grand Canyon

Postby Nfl Fan » Sat Mar 21, 2009 3:00 pm

Pretty stoked...

I have been to 20 countries but have never seen the Grand Canyon. That said, me and the fam are visiting my folks in Havasu for spring break. But first, we'll take a detour and see this wonder of the world for the first time tomorrow.

Anybody been? Is there any 'must do' that doesn't cost an arm and leg? Flying to Vegas tonight and staying in Williams so tomorrow morning we'll only be an hour away.

Can't wait! :-)

Stop in Sedona, Arizona (90 minutes away) if you can or if it's on the way. A few years ago, USA Today named it the most beautiful city in America and it is. So much so, I'm thinking about retiring there. It's unbelievably gorgeous with the red rock formations.

I'm having trouble posting pictures, but check out these images:

Unlike the Grand Canyon, you drive through, walk through, hike through all of this beauty:

(actually I'm pretty sure you can hike through the GC, but we didn't have time when we went)

And this church is built right into the rocks:

Grand Canyon was phenomenal when I visited two summers ago. We ended up taking helicopter over the Canyon and that was great. Probably one of the best things I've ever experienced.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Went as a kid and recall it being pretty cool. Would love to go now that I would probably appreciate it more.

I've never been to the Grand Canyon, but I kind of saw something like it once. I was digging a hole in my backyard for some posts, and I stopped for a second for a sip of beer, and as I sipped I glanced down at the hole I was digging.

So I've pretty much seen it. :-B
