I had a chance to visit the Grand Canyon for the sunrise this week. It was early (we left Flagstaff before 5AM), it was cold (20 degrees F with a wind that just went through you), and it was worth it.
You can’t go all this way and head right home. So it was time to start walking!
A lot of people take the bus from the Visitor’s Center to the Village from Mather Point. Please Don’t! The walk between the two is a nice one – and rarely has a lot of people on it (even in the summer). And you can always ride the bus back.
Of all the animals you can see at the Grand Canyon, the Raven fascinates me most.
This was my first time back since we hiked Rim-to-Rim (blog) in the spring. And I feel absolutely blessed to live close enough come back as often as I like.
