Roadtrip Adventure: The Grand Canyon

We spent just about 24 hours at the Grand Canyon. It was a beautiful drive and crossing through the National Park gate is a great feeling. Oh, and since we we're more than half way to the cost of a season pass, we bought one. So, it's definitely gotta be a year of adventure!

I'd never been to the Grand Canyon before. Have you?
It's pretty amazing. It's kind of hard to take the depth in while you stand on top and look across.
As we drove away from the canyon we had views from new angles. I loved looking down it instead of across it. But each angle and sunrise versus sunset provided a different experience.

We hiked about 1.5 miles down and watched the sunset. A couple passed us who had hiked 43 miles since 4am. FOURTY THREE. That is insane. I told them that it was amazing and she responded with, "Or stupid, feels pretty stupid right now."

I am pretty grateful for sights like these and the variety of creation we get to explore. I have some of my best "simply present" moments with God in beautiful settings like this that He has created.

Alrighty, take a look.

Gorgeous!!! I haven't been to the Grand Canyon since I was a kid. I don't remember it being this pretty. Going to have to give it another shot when we make out way to Sedona later this year. :)
