yep, still need to work on crafty titles!
even though we’ve been to the north rim before, we were only 2 hours away from the south rim. that’s too close not to take a day trip. definitely more touristy than the north rim, but today was cold, cloudy, and snowy. Not many other people were out, it was perfect!
the grand canyon does not disappoint. photos really doesn’t do it justice. i love seeing down in the canyon, but i really want to get down into the canyon. and down the the river. talking about feeling tiny. it’s on our list to do!
our cold peanut butter sandwich that we had brought for lunch just didn’t seem like it was going to hit the spot. decided to eat lunch at the bright angel lodge. the national park lodges are pretty awesome.
dessert first! it actually helped with my headache. maybe it wasn’t the altitude that was bothering me, maybe it was sugar withdrawal. evil sugar!
lunch was fantastic. and not an expensive as you would think it would be in a national park.
mike got coffee at mcdonalds outside of the park. the people in front of him got food. for 2 people it was $20. we got desert and lunch for only $25. and it was tasty! and with a view!
something good about so few people visiting, we all were doing the same thing. stopping at every overlook and taking photos. so we would take photos of couples and then they would take them of us. cooler thing … it seemed that we were from different countries. so no one really spoke english. being kind and taking a photo of someone doesn’t need words, just a hand gesture and a smile
since the guys weren’t able to run free in the park, we stopped right outside on a forest road for a little hike.
yesterday sam didn’t care about the snow. today he realized that he loves it!
heading home. we had a great day!
it was awesome to see the grand canyon in the snow. and to be able to drive the road that’s normally closed to cars. and not have to share the park with many other people. and to be able to hike in the snow with the boys. did i mention that we had a great day?
