Grand Canyon

Liz here. Friday morning we left New Mexico headed to the Grand Canyon. It was a long slow drive and finding a spot to park our rig was worse, but it was all so worth it after a short 4 minute hike to the lookout spot closest to the Visitor Center. I have dreamed of seeing the Grand Canyon for as long as I can remember and it was just as magnificent as I imagined it to be. The canyon is over 200 miles long and averages about 10 miles across from the south rim to the north rim. We only spent about 2 hours exploring and let me tell you- it was not enough! If you’ve never been, there is a reason the entrance fee covers a 7 day pass. You need at least that long to see and learn all that’s there!
