    Grand Canyon - South Rim

    July 2, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Da am Freitag immer noch schlechtes Wetter für den Grand Canyon angesagt war, mussten wir ein wenig umplanen. Da es uns doch sehr wichtig war, den Grand Canyon zu besuchen, haben wir uns dafür entschieden, die Automietung um einen Tag zu verlängern um uns am Samstag auf den Weg zu machen - die Wettervorhersage war nämlich sehr gut 🌞 - und auch etwas weiter zum South Rim zu fahren, wo der Nationalpark noch viel schöner und größer ist als der West Rim.
    Und das war definitiv die richtige Entscheidung gewesen !! Es war natürlich sehr aufwendig ( von Las Vegas zum Grand Canyon - 442 km, vom Grand Canyon zurück nach LA - 815 km
    ➡ Amerika ist definitiv zu groß!🙈) aber es hat sich unglaublich gelohnt diese Fahrerei auf sich zu nehmen.
    Es ist gar nicht wirklich zu beschreiben, wie es ist vor dieser Kulisse zu stehen und diese Natur zu erleben. Ich wünsche jedem, das einmal selber gesehen zu haben 😍✨
    Hightlights waren: das unglaublich nervenaufreibende Fußballspiel unserer Mannschaft 🎉󾓨 ( was wir durch Zufall in einer Bar im Nationalpark gucken konnten), direkte Begegnung am Straßenrand mit einer Herde Hirsche und letztendlich den Sonnenuntergang am Grand Canyon zu beobachten 🌄🌟
    Nun liegen wir nach einer langen Fahrt endlich in unserem Hotelzimmer in Los Angeles und genießen unseren letzten Abend zu dritt 🙆 Die Zeit rast 💨 und wir werden die Zeit zusammen vermissen!💖
    Next Stop: back to Vancouver 🍁

    The Canyon? She was very grand...

    August 12, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Today was a visit to the Grand Canyon. The last time is saw it was 2009, in mid-winter after a fresh deep snowfall. It was quite different now. We walked the majority of the South Rim, and took some magnificent pictures. The morning dawned cool, but the sun shined bright...til about half way on our walk. The black clouds loomed, hastening our steps. Arriving at the Bright Angel trailhead, the winds picked up, and the temperature dropped about 10 degrees. Time to hit the trail...on our way out of the park, we found a herds of elk. Paul pushed me from the car, telling me to go further, closer!!! This was as close as I cared to get...Read more

    A familiar face at the Grand Canyon

    July 11, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Unfortunately we had to leave the Grand Canyon Trailer Village campground because they were all booked for the night. We ventured to Tusayan which is a little town just outside the park. After deciding the helicopter rides were too expensive and the tours were not what we were looking for, we went back to the RV parking at the visitors center of the Grand Canyon so we could take the shuttle to the lookout point. Just as we got there it started raining and cancelled our exploring for the rest of the day. Since this was our first bad day of weather, we really couldn't complain. Our next job was to find a place to park for the night. The park rangers told us we could dry camp in the Kaibab National Forest just outside the park. To find exactly where, we pulled into the rangers base to ask for their recommendations. While Robert was inside with the rangers, a young park ranger walked past me in the RV, she started to wave and then did a double take....it was Erica Fortin, the daughter of good friends of ours. It truly is a very small world. She gave us directions to a campground run by her National Forest Unit and we spent the night there. It was great especially because once again there were more elk. This time they were right at the entrance to the campsites.Read more

    More of the Grand Canyon

    July 13, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    Today we spend the day seeing even more of the Grand Canyon. We finished with all of the lookouts on the shuttle tour that we had started yesterday. Then we did a mile walk along the rim on the east of the southern rim. More beautiful views but also more people on this rim walk probably because it was closest to the tour bus parking lot. We certainly enjoyed our days at the canyon and feel so happy that we could experience one of the world's seven wonders. Next stop is Phoenix, Arizona to see Mark and Sandra Fortin.Read more
