We spent today driving around the Grand Canyon park and seeing the sights. It is certainly an impressive sight!
This morning, before we left our RV spot we were relaxing outside when Sarah Michael saw a little groundhog-type animal poking his head out of a hole. We watched as it pushed dirt up from his tunnel out onto a pile. And he didn’t seem the least bit afraid of us. We got closer and closer and he just went about his business.
Then we headed off to see the canyon. We headed off to one of the historic sites in the park and on the way stopped at one of the many roadside view points. I imagine it is hard to find a bad spot to view the canyon, as everywhere you go and the views are spectacular.
Sarah Michael thought the this rock formation looked like WALL•E in his crouched position…
Next we went to the Watchtower, built in 1932. It is three stories high and has great views.
We stopped at a couple of other viewpoints and the view was always great. But it didn’t take me long to get tired and want to get back to the RV. The Grand Canyon is beautiful, but it all kinda looks the same after a while.
So we’re back in camp now, relaxing (this is what vacations are for!). We leave tomorrow for a couple days of long driving so I’m going to luxuriate in nothingness for as long as I can!
