A Perfect Day for the Grand Canyon Tour!

The Grand Canyon…I had heard about this place more than a thousand times!

Two weeks ago, I FINALLY saw the Grand Canyon!

It was a bright and perfect day for my tour. I left the hotel and headed to the Grand Canyon Airport around 10 A.M.

We took this cute tour bus. It was easy for the general public to see where we were headed.

People were waiting for the helicopters and the airplanes. Our airplane was a bit late, so we had to wait about an hour.

I was already tired even before the tour started when I finally boarded this airplane; however, I gave no complaints once I saw the view through the airplane window. I was flying over the Colorado River and the Hoover Dam!

After the one hour flight, the airplane landed at the Grand Canyon National Park Airport. The airport was much colder than I thought; it felt close to freezing! I regretted not carrying my thick jacket.

We started the bus tour in the park. The real Grand Canyon tour has started.

These shots are from Mather Point which is the most popular vantage point of the Grand Canyon. The sky was so blue and the Grand Canyon made my jaw drop in awe! I felt like I was standing at the edge of the earth! My first impression of the Grand Canyon was perfect for me.🙂

Bright Angel Lodge, a series of stone and wood buildings along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, was the second point we visited. Fortunately, we arrived just before sunset.

On the way back to the Grand Canyon Airport, I was sleeping on the plane but I could imagine how beautiful the night view must have been.
