Saturday 7th May
Mum got a message first thing, confirming that the North Rim access road was shut. Determined to see the Grand Canyon we googled how long it would take to the south rim (4 hours each way) With nothing else planned we decide to take the opportunity and go for it.
Stopping on the way:
It was WELL worth it…
We stopped at the Visitors Centre to get on the shuttle bus...Unfortunately this was one of the worst weather days, so we didn’t stay on the shuttle route for very long. It was freezing and felt like there was snow in the air.
On the way I was worried that i'd be disappointed, but I can't even explain how GRAND it was, it was absolutely amazing!
We stopped at Page on the way back out of Arizona to try some American Mc Donalds (not worth it), and made it back to Kanab about 10pm.
This would be Edith’s Aussie birthday so now she can claim she was at the Grand Canyon for it.
Some wildlife we saw on the way out:
