The Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon 1

The Grand Canyon is one of the most visited and one of the most famous National Parks. With nearly five million people visiting every year, it is a tourist and adventurer hotspot. I’ve been lucky enough to have been to the Grand Canyon twice: once when I was very young and again just last year. (The photos in this post are from my most recent visit, in October.)

The Grand Canyon is a mile deep and 277 river miles long with overwhelmingly beautiful geological colors and unique erosional forms. There are two main Villages: the South Rim and the North Rim. When I was there in October, I stayed in the South Rim Village. Below is a photo right by my cabin by the railroad. There are also many opportunities for camping, hiking, backpacking and other Grand Canyon adventures.

Visit the Park’s website at http://www.nps.gov/grca/index.htm for more details and always make sure to call ahead or make reservations as the Grand Canyon is very popular year round. After all, who wouldn’t want to make the Grand Canyon their next travel destination? It is so breathtakingly beautiful! Below are photos I took from various times of day from sunset to sunrise.
