You know how it’s said that “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night” can stop postal workers? We felt a bit similar on this trip: not a busted van nor blowing snow nor hours of monotonous desert highways could keep us from the Grand Canyon—and on Sunday we finally made it!
As you can see in our gallery, we took in the awesome, billion-year-old sights over the course of nearly seven miles of walking. We were blessed with a gloriously clear & fairly warm day, and fortunately neither daredevil Hen nor Irish-despondent Dad took a plunge into the canyon. Hen was also more than thrilled to spend a bunch of time up close & personal with the cars of the famous Grand Canyon Railway. Afterwards we pit stopped at an air museum & then finished the day on the neon-lit streets of historic Route 66 in Williams, AZ.
And here you can see some of what we experienced while walking around the canyon & later the train:
