The Grand Canyon

Kyle and I got back from our trip to the Grand Canyon about an hour ago. We had an AMAZING time. We drove up yesterday morning, stayed in Williams and spent today at the canyon. We had our dog, Emma, set up to be boarded but at the last minute decided that she was going with us. Thankfully I had booked a pet friendly hotel. 

We got up bright and early this morning and headed off to the Grand Canyon. All I can say is WOW!!!  I was in awe of how amazingly beautiful it was. It was so peaceful and calming. We walked almost 6 miles along the South Rim and Emma did great, we thought with her tiny legs that she would have fallen out early but nope (minus a 20 minute stint in my backpack, you will see what I'm talking about when you see the picture). 

I am glad that we were able to go, I know that if we didn't that would be the one thing that I would regret the most. Here are a few pictures from the day:

Amazing right?!

Mathor Point


Colorado River

You can see the trail that you take on the donkey tour

I love him!!!

Nothing like seeing the American Flag flying high.

See!!!! She was a happy little camper in the backpack, after this she was ready to go and walked the remaining 3 miles. :) 

I had to post these 2 pictures. This is Bedrock, you can actually camp here and they have a tour through the town. Haha it's hilarious!

These are the houses in Bedrock.

I figured I would only post a handful of pictures, don't want to overload everyone. We will spend the rest of the weekend relaxing, watching movies and enjoying our time together. 

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!!

  7. Great pictures! The Grand Canyon is so beautiful. My husband's never seen it, so I told him it's a must when we get back to the states for longer than a week. Love the one with your pup in the backpack, so precious!

  8. So pretty! I've always wanted to visit the Grand Canyon! We almost did when we went to Phoenix last Christmas but it didn't work out.

    ps. I know another family going to school at the same post as you guys and they're CONSTANTLY complaining about not having anything to do. I feel like pointing them to your blog and saying, "They go to so many cool places, what do you mean there's nothing to do?!" ;)

  9. Gorgeous! You make me want to go back there so much!


Love hearing from you!! :)
