|Desert Watchtower View - A beautiful (and cold) night.|
|I love they layers of cliff and canyon.|
|Dangling my feet off the edge...|
My camera ran out of batteries, so I took a few pictures with my iPhone. At first, I was really upset about this fact. I had looked forward to going and taking pictures. But what can you do? Nothing. My camera only takes a special battery, and I'd have to drive to Flag to get another one (over an hour away). I took this as a sign from the universe, and instead of trying to capture the Grand Canyon inside of my viewfinder, I simply experienced it, instead. It was really great.
We didn't go down to the Colorado River. You will need to plan your trip in advance if you want to camp or stay in the lodge down at the bottom. So we took a few day hikes and we also rented bikes and rode along the rim. So...even though I have crossed this off my current 101 in 1,001 list, I have something to add to a future list - hike rim to rim. Or similar. That's the goal...
The Grand Canyon is astounding. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but in the Grand Canyon, there are a billion words...how do you express that? Just go.
