Visiting Grand Canyon National Park is a must when you travel to Arizona. The vast canyon is one of the world’s natural wonders and will take your breath away every time you step up to the edge.
Our family has had the opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon twice in the past 6 months. Last fall my husband and I headed to Arizona with our oldest son as he got ready to start his first year in college. We decided to take a two day detour to see the natural canyon wonder and to do a little hiking with him before we dropped him off.
I can’t even begin to describe the enormous amount of awe that comes over you when you see the Grand Canyon for the very first time. It is seriously one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life.
One of my favorite things about it was seeing how it changed from different angles and different light. The colors in the layers of rocks could go from muted to vibrant in a short time frame. It all depends on the time of day you get there and how much sunlight is shining down.
