Our third day of our Grand Canyon adventure involved a drive around the south rim of the Canyon.
I keep talking about the amazing views from the Canyon, but I can’t say it enough. It is an overwhelming kind of beauty that puts into perspective the size of a human life in the vastness of the world. I felt a similar kind of awe as a teenager when we went to the Rocky Mountains. The scope is simply so huge that you feel so very small.
I’m not going to have a lot of profound words in this post, I’m going to let the pictures speak for themselves for a while.
Along the drive there were several areas where you can get out and learn about the wildlife in the Canyon and the different types of people who have lived in and around the Canyon over the years.
A few of the sign writers had a punny side to them:
And a few of them were surprising… what I wanted to know was if there was a sign for the snakes telling them to not harm me!
We made it back to the lodge in time for some leisure time– ah yes, even time in the lodge can be fun!
And I even took a solo walk to the rim at sunset to get a coffee.
Such an amazing day filled with beauty!
Thanks for stopping by!
