Grand Canyon, Arizona.

Here are a few from our trip in July 2011.
We were only there for the day, It's definitely on the list of places to re-visit!
Take notice of the picture of a guy painting a picture of the canyon!


Edit; This Elk was just a few hundred feet from the entrance to the Village!

You need to go back and try the new "Skywalk".....It was built since I was
there but, it looks kinda' "scary".......

I was there for a whirlwind visit about 15 years ago. Flew into Phoenix in the dark and drove to Flagstaff. Spent the night, got up and went skiing at the Snowbowl on the day it was closing for the season. Then we drove north as the sun was getting low in the sky and finally got to the Grand Canyon Village about an hour or two after sunset. We got up at sunrise, took a peek over the rim, and headed back to Phoenix by way of Sedona to attend some stinking conference. Sedona was really nice also.

All in all a very a fun trip and somewhere I would love to visit with more time on my hands. Incredible scenery and very pleasant weather.

We were there in 2000..(that's when I took these photos)..wife's sister and her husband and we took a little excursion "West" from West Virginia in July of that year....traveled West on I-64 from Charleston to St. Louis then traveled up the Mississippi to Sioux Falls and I-90.......then traveled I-90 West, seeing what we could as we moved along...Ie; Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, etc......then took US-212 from Sturgis/Spearhead, SD to Billing's, Montana.......continued on US-212 South through Red Lodge/Cooke City (traveled over Beartooth Pass...an incredible drive and sight) to Yellowstone Nat'l. Park....then to Salt Lake City (visiting the spectactular "Copper Mine" excavation)....and to Las Vegas (naturally..)....on over to the "Grand Canyon", down to Phoenix through "Arches Nat'l. Park", "Monument Valley", etc. (to visit my brother at Surprise, AZ..suburb of Phoenix), back to Flagstaff to I-40 and headed back to WV..through Memphis, TN, (side trip to Tunica)...was thoroughy amazed at what we saw.....nothing in that part of the country resembled WV...I would like, and haved planned to, visit my Bro. in Surprise..flying there and letting him drive US to some of the sights again....
