Mega Road Trip Part 2: Grand Canyon


Our road trip continues…

DID YOU KNOW… You can get a national park pass for $85 and it will give you an annual membership to over a hundred national parks? That’s well worth the price, as some park admission fees are $35 per vehicle.

Today we are heading to Grand Canyon National Park! The main parking lot here is just a 5-minute walk away from Mather Point, which offers tremendous views.

The Grand Canyon National Park covers a whopping 1,217,262 acres and shows off layers of red rock that reveal millions of years of history.

“Make sure you get my best side,” said a familiar voice.

“Let me guess… DROOPY?” He was asking his photographer to take a photo of him. See? I told you we would run into each other again on this trip.

Here’s a photo of Grand Canyon from Mather Point – what a beauty!

I don’t know about you, but suddenly I feel very, very small standing here in front of the Grand Canyon. And I bet even Uncle Tibbs would feel small also! It is just a breathtaking sight.

If you look closely, you will see some people standing on the outcrop at the left of this photo. Look how tiny they are!

This park is so huge that they have different shuttle buses taking visitors to other parts such as the North Rim and the South Rim, to name a few. But I heard the views here are one of the best!

Did you know only 12 people have thru-hiked the entire 700-mile full length of the Grand Canyon? The terrain is very difficult, requires rock scrambling, the heat can be intense, and it’s difficult to resupply on the thru hike.

Alright, one more look at this beauty and then we’re off to our next stop!
