Grand Canyon Trip!

September 24, 2015

Hey all!

So recently I was dragged out of my lair, across state lines, and into a huge abyss popularly known as the Grand Canyon, where I plunged 6,000 feet to my death, was saved by a recalcitrant donkey, and then repeatedly dunked into the Colorado River.

Okay. So that didn't happen. But I did spent most of my time in a tent. So I was roughing it, people. Just because I have an air mattress doesn't mean I wasn't camping. (Stop laughing!)

Here's a picture of me right before I plunged into the abyss.

Anyway, despite my initial reluctance to leave my hobbit hole, I had a nice time and took lots of pictures. Amazing that even though this was my fourth trip it's still so awe-inspiring. Here are a few of the shots I took:

Awesome view from Hermit's Rest. We hiked most of the way up here from the campsite. My feet still haven't forgiven me.

Some elk chillin' in the shade

Some dude staring out of the cliff-face… wait, what?

Yeah, I know. I have a juvenile sense of humor.

Another face.

Just before sunset.

Sunset

Speaking of sunsets, do you see these two adorable people? That's my sister and her boyfriend watching said sunset with me. And as we were walking back to the campsite, he got down on one knee and proposed to her. With the Canyon behind him and everything.

YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT. As in, they're getting married!!! And I got to witness it and everything, people. IT'S LEGIT.

Okay, so that may have been more excitement from me than I can handle. I'm home now, so I'm going to take a real shower or something. And maybe even write.

Just popping in from Scrib. I’ve heard that pictures don’t do the Grand Canyon justice, but yours are beautiful. And my close friend also got engaged there. I sure hope to get there some day!
Be well,
Robin 🙂

    Hi Robin! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you get to visit the Canyon someday – the view is definitely better than the photos. 🙂
