Finally hauled my butt to the Grand Canyon. 'cause, you know probably should see one of the most significant national parks and natural wonders eventually. Compared to flying all over the world like I'm used to, it's also relatively close!
Day 1 - early morning, quick flight, brunch, and sunset at the Grand Canyon via the Rim Trail west to Hopi Point.
Day 2 - a nap that felt almost as quick as the flight, an even earlier wake-up than the day before, and middle of the night departure to begin day at the Grand Canyon in the pre-dawn hours.
Day 3 - with much of the Grand Canyon being extremely rugged, a helicopter ride seemed to be the thing to do, plus the return to Phoenix.
