Grand Canyon National Park
Grand Canyon National Park:
The Grand Canyon is more than a great chasm carved over millennia through the rocks of the Colorado Plateau. It is more than an awe-inspiring view. It is more than a pleasuring ground for those who explore the roads, hike the trails, or float the currents of the turbulent Colorado River.
The Grand Canyon is an awesome place. Its overwhelming size and its intricate and colorful landscape make it without question one of the seven marvels of the natural world.There are many miles of paved and unpaved walkways along the rim. The North Rim of the Grand Canyon shares similar outstanding views from a vantage point 1000 feet higher than on the South Rim.The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a new and quite unique tourist attraction located literally on the edge of the Grand Canyon. The Skywalk is a glass-bottom horseshoe-shaped walkway projecting 70 feet out over the edge allowing visitors to look straight down, nearly 4,000 feet below to the bottom of the canyon.
We had a great time and wonderful stay in the park. Everybody was courteous and genuinely seemed happy. Plenty to do and see. I even saw many smiling teens. You should plan to go, stay and enjoy for a day or a week. You won't regret or forget the experience.
What else is there to say? You can write a blog about the specific part of the Park you may have visited and it would never be enough. What I loved about the South Rim and area was the quality of park amenities, trails and overall experience. The fact that you can walk off the trail and take a look over the edge without guarding was priceless. Yes, there are beautifully paved paths that are accessible for handicap and all; guarded and safe.... But if you are feeling adventurous there are several amazing spots to experience the edge while being as safe as common sense allows. A cooler type backpack with a few waters and a lunch is recommended. To take a good bit in, plan to hike at least 5 - 10 miles. And for those who can't, there is handicap parking fairly close and you can access they key spots at a close distance. By train, bus, drive or hike it's an experience of a lifetime. I'd love to come back without child and do one of the intermediate canyon hikes. Amazing experience!
Our visit was amazing be prepared to drive an hour from the expressway entry is 30 dollars for the day. Military has perks 😉 you can book hotels nearby and they have restaurants nearby I would suggest taking items since it is a little pricey. It is so beautiful ❤️pictures do no justice.
We just went unplanned and could able to see sunset at Howell point.. It was peaceful.. Got only limited time.. Good for parents.. they will really enjoy the place and sights.. may need at least 4 hours if you were for sightseeing.. Definitely will come back..
The North Rim is amazing! Way less people than the South Rim, so very relaxing. If you can't camp in the North Rim campground just dispersed camp right outside the park (for free) - stop and talk to a Forest Service station for more details.
