Back in July, we took an awesome road trip to Utah for a family reunion. We stopped at the Grand Canyon on the way. It is funny that I grew up in the Grand Canyon state of Arizona, but never went until I lived in another state! I live in Arizona again and this was my second time there. Here are some photos of my gorgeous cousin and her parents at the Grand Canyon-
It was such a beautiful scenic drive to the actual rim of the Grand Canyon; long-winding roads through meadows and pine trees. After the entrance, we saw a herd of buffalo on the first curve. Then it lightly sprinkled and I had to roll the windows down to smell the cool, mountain rain air. It would be so neat to stay a few nights in the cute little lodges there!
Here is a picture of my family watching us from a room of safety as we ventured to the edge of the Grand Canyon!
Tips for visiting the Grand Canyon-
Be prepared for all weather. We went in the middle of the day and it rained, it was cold, then it was hot and sunny. Bring a coat, boots/tennis shoes, sunglasses and lots of sunscreen
It is windy! Hats will fly off unless you have them tied to your head.
That full 1PM sun…so bright!
My brother and I got lost for a bit after this because everybody else only looked at the Grand Canyon for a couple minutes. I was in my own little photography world there! I wanted to go hiking and take a million photos. We found them by the car eventually and drove off to find a picnic table.
I would love to shoot here more often, where are my adventurous couples at?
