Grand Canyon Railway train to the Grand Canyon was the way to go! Such beautiful scenery, from the dry plains to the ponderosa pines. Lloyd and I could both relax and enjoy the views. The PSA, Noel was very cute, and told us about the history of the train, and the train route to the Grand Canyon. We sat in the dome car, enjoying drinks.
The most amazing scene - walking up to the rim of the Grand Canyon. I got so emotional, and cried for a bit. Mother Nature was not fooling around when she made this beauty. Lloyd and I hiked the Bright Angel Trail, down was fairly easy :-) but coming back was pretty sweaty! It was about 2 miles total. So happy we went on the hike. Seeing it from above just wasn’t enough. I wish we could have gone further, but we didn’t have the time. Maybe next time!
After our trip to the Grand Canyon, it rained, lightening and thundered like CRAZY. So much fun, and a little scary! The rainbow was incredible, but when it got dark, the thunder claps got even louder, and more frightening. :-)
