April 22 – Day 13: We are staying in Trailer Park Village in the Grand Canyon. It’s a really cool campground. The elk are everywhere!
We hike the eastern part of the south rim in the morning and take a bike tour of the western part in the afternoon. Even the squirrels get close to the edge for a better view.
As usual the pictures don’t do it justice, but we took a lot anyway.
April 23 – Day 14: The one thing Steve says we have to do when we’re in the Grand Canyon is take a helicopter tour. He took one on a previous visit, but at $300 a person, I am the one who is agonizing about spending that much money. My wonderful husband takes one for the bank account and sends me up by myself. I am SO glad he did. It was breathtaking. You can not grasp the enormity and diverseness of the canyon until you see it from above. I take lots of pictures but am disappointed that they didn’t come anywhere near close to capturing what I saw. I take a video as we enter the canyon. I wish I had known that it turned out as good as it did because I would have just videoed the whole tour.
