Another picture post of the Grand Canyon,
I was fortunate enough to witness sunset at the Grand Canyon. We were told the desert view is the best place to view the sunset, so that is where we drove to.
It was Beautiful
It was also very cold, I could not get warm at all, but seeing the sunset was worth freezing my tush off.
All pictures will be on my facebook page.
The grand canyon is well…. Grand. Many people have written about the Grand Canyon, and all of it’s glory, and I really don’t know how they are able to do that, because there are no words I can write to express my admiration.
I remember the first time I saw the Canyon, and it literally took my breath away. I was 19, and the same feeling occurred this past trip, 11 years later…
While this was my second visit to the beautiful park, I could go on and on about the majestic canyon, but I am choosing to make this post about the pictures not words, because simply put my words do not do the Canyon justice… I am not poetic like that 😉
I took 100s of photos, you can see all of them at my facebook page
Oh we must go to Snow Bowl Mountain!
I can’t tell you how much I heard this on my road trip with the family, so much that I was ready to go to get it over with. I am not really a big fan of snow, but the ski lifts were apparently fun, and I figured why not.
Except it was closed.
In October, apparently a lot of ski resorts like to prepare for ski season so they often close their lifts, and they had just closed the day before. As I am someone who prefers the tropics, sunshine & coconut oil I did not know this.
So I just assumed this was a next time, type of situation, but I forgot my mother was along for the drive and at every chance, would take a picture of the mountain.
And I do mean EVERY chance…
Oh pull over! Pull over… slow down slow down, or pull over again!
At the time it was annoying, I mean we had a Grand Canyon to get to, but looking at the pictures now, well the pics make me smile, it reminds me of my mother who I don’t see as often as I like, and because, looking back it is often those annoying moments that happen to be the moments you remember forever.
Here is the infamous Snow Bowl Mountain, and believe me if I ever make it back to Arizona, I will have to check it out, because from a distance the mountain is beautiful, so I can only imagine what experiencing it up close is like.
Here are the pics
