This will be a picture heavy post, so grab a coffee, tea, your favourite beverage and sit awhile.
The scenery on the way was breathtaking and we managed to get some great photos. The girls did us proud again :-)
This is a fab picture of the Vermilion Cliffs, taken by Shannon (from the car). And one by me :-)
We stopped off at the Navajo Bridge - wow. The girls also bought some lovely necklaces and a wolf ornament off of the Native Navajo peoples. Andy and I bought an Native Christmas decoration, all hand painted.
Shannon's photo over the bridge, look at the wonderful reflection in the river.
There was a nice walk way and I felt reasonable happy to walk out on this too. So much so I pretended to push the girls off LOL!
And payback off Shannon :-)
And then I photo bombed the photo of the girls :-)
Me and my wonderful girls.
Shannon caught this great photo of the mountains - can you see the sad face :-)
Then on to the Grand Canyon. This is the start of the Grand Canyon, the huge gullies were amazing, you could picture the earth just separating. I took this one from the car as we were zooming along.
And there we were the Grand Canyon.
or maybe not ;-) That's Emily's hand there. We sat on these rocks to have some lunch, and couldn't resist taking the photo, hee hee hee :-)
Now for the real thing though!
Taken by Emily now. This we nick-named the Hobbit hole :-)
Can you see the walking trail on this one, don't think you would catch me doing that.
Just - WOW!
Then we had a dare devil squirrel, who seemed to be enjoying the views too! (he is over to the right, well camouflaged from the hawks.
And look, I do have a husband, just saying :-) And he is actually smiling LOL!
Emily caught two great photos of a storm rolling in.
That is where the disappointment came in. The helicopter flight that Andy and Emily were meant to go had to be cancelled because of the storm :-( We are going to see if we can get them a helicopter flight at the end of the vacation in Las Vegas, to make up for it.
Just a few more photos now that we took at the view points on the way out of the Canyon. Andy took this one standing on a wall!
And there you have it. Day 2 completed. We got back to the hotel around 11pm last night, hence I typed this, this morning. Now time for a shower and off to breakfast.
Next stop Bryce Canyon and then onto our next hotel, Vernal, Utah.
Tally of miles 420 yesterday, total stands at 622 miles at the end of Day 2 :-)
Hope you stayed with me and are all well.
Thanks for stopping by.
