Grand Canyon

 

277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile (6,093 feet or 1,857 meters)

With these impressive numbers, I do not have to explain how amazing this Nation Park is. It overwhelms your senses through its immense size. Standing on the rim, makes you double check that you are not looking at a painting. Descending into the canyon makes every sense flicker.

So put on those hiking boots, and hit the Canyon.

Take it all in

Visiting the Grand Canyon is a once in a lifetime experience. At least for me. So when you go, take your time to take it all in.

When I arrived to the rim, after about a one hour drive, I was so exited to finally see this natural masterpiece!

The crazy amount of tourists make it easy for you to forget that you have to enjoy & take your time instead of running back to the car in search for some peace.

So take a stroll, or a hike along the rim. This way you can see it from different angles.

If you want an easy one, thake the Rim trail. No ups nor downs with this one but you do get lots of amazing views and quiet spots to take your pictures.

Take a hike

When I googled pictures of the Grand Canyon, I never saw them from the inside of the canyon.

Probably because I am not the most adventurous kind of tourist or just because I hadn’t done enough research.

Anyway. I was very excited to discover that you one can take a hike into the canyon. There are no easy hikes into the canyon, but if you are careful and take it one step at a time, you should do just fine.

Ooh-Aah point

I chose for a hike on the South Kaibab Trail upto the Ooh-Aah Point. Love the name. And yes, I went all Ooh-Aah on it.

This hike let’s you admire the greatness of the Canyon in all it’s beauty. We crossed horses that came all the way from the Colorado river at the bottom. It does not come more idyllic than this.
