Las Vegas Side Trips - Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona averages 4.7 million visitors annually. Over 3 million will visit the South Rim. Nearly 750,000 will enjoy the North Rim. And 500,000 will visit the newly discovered West Rim. Also, 500,000 will fly over magnificent Grand Canyon on an Air Tour from Las Vegas.

The Grand Canyon is more than a great chasm carved over millennia through the rocks of the Colorado Plateau. It is more than an awe-inspiring view. It is more than a pleasuring ground for those that explore the roads, hike the trails, or float the currents of the turbulent Colorado River.
This canyon is a gift that transcends what we experience. Its beauty and size humbles us. Its timelessness provokes a comparison to our short existence. In its vast spaces we may find solace from our hectic lives.

Good Morning! I have been lazy this week. The daughter and grandbaby wore me out. Jake is still into rocks and was sick. I looked and those bunnies are the cutie's thing's I have seen in awhile. Put that on my will get when we go to Blenko. Lilly loves animals. That stain glass brings back thoughts of my younger years. I lived in Glendale,Az. for afew years. Remeber all the different colors of the clay. You two girls look like you are having a good time. I cannot wait to here! The thought of your Mom's stories makes me laugh.

Nature is the most expert in design and color do not you agree?
