Is it possible to ruin the Grand Canyon? I have to admit that we were a little concerned. We loved the Badlands, Black Hills, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and other parks. We also have now experienced Zion Canyon in Utah…would the Grand Canyon’s glory be dimmed by our prior experiences? In one word…”not even close.” Let me try that again…in one word… “NO WAY, JOSE!” That was three too!
Seriously, no! The Grand Canyon lived up to its standard of pristine awesomeness. Part of its brilliance is its stillness. The depth and extremes of its views are perfectly still. I loved that.
Vista Encantada & Roosevelt Point
Looking for more of the classic Grand Canyon red tones? How about these vistas…
The point of interest at this overlook is the archaeological dig that shows the remains of a Puebloan community on the rim. The third photo shows where their winter delta lodging in the canyon along the Colorado River was located, conveniently highlighted by natural sunlight.
This viewpoint features angels window… And Chris reveled in hanging over the precarious edge…look at that cheese! (Do people say that anymore???)We also were able to enjoy a storm blowing in to the canyon…
Up next, another canyon…Bryce Canyon!
