Heading into National Park #4 – the Grand Canyon – means that our $80 annual national parks pass has now pretty much paid for itself. A wise buy for anyone planning on visiting more than one park (the pass is good for up to 4 adults). (So far, the only free park was Redwood – otherwise, the entry fee has been $20 or $25 at each park.)
Anywho, I’m very tired right now, but I wanted to share some pics from our visit to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. It took us about 4 hours to drive from Zion to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon (the North Rim is only open between mid-May and October because snow prevents the roads from opening up), and we camped there for 3 days, 2 nights. GC has definitely been the busiest park so far, but that’s to be expected. As for weather, it was a grab bag. Sunny and blue skies, but the wind chill was a killer, and on both nights, the low was in the 30s! Sooo cooooldd!!

There’s so much more I want to say about the Grand Canyon…but for now, let’s just leave it at – it’s Grand. Fo’ sho. Go see it.

Here are a couple of my fave pics –
