It was exciting waking up in the Grand Canyon. It felt like a Disneyland morning. The anticipation got me up early. Jason was less enthusiastic about visiting “the big hole in the ground”. We pulled up to the park about 9am.
Of course I should have known where my real camera was packed and had it charged. I doubt it could have captured the full extent of the Canyon anyway, but still….
We stayed for an hour with a promise to return and see more. Jason was appropriately impressed and is dying to mountain bike, camp and hike the area properly. Maybe next year.
We hit the road about 10 and the drive out of the park was through a snow globe of clouds. Sort of like an airplane.
I had a little free time and was able to negotiate our hotel room down to $53 in Amarillo with a AAA discount. Hahaha! Very clean and super comfy. I enjoyed the down comforter and pillows and was thankful to not be allergic to those (Alzos 😘). Also, my Carolyn packed us with so many great snacks we never stopped for food. It was a very productive day. Thanks for all of the comments and support. We love being connected to everyone. Peace!
