Ahh…welcome to Grand Canyon-where the rocks are grand, and the beauty? Grander. (Is that even a word?) It’s so funny how I find myself wishing I could go visit all of the national parks and scenic places I once went as a child that at that time, I could care less about. I first came to the Grand Canyon some time while I was still in elementary school, thinking the views were cool and all that but getting more and more bored by the minute after hours of looking at all these big rocks. Nowadays, I tell my parents to stop at every viewpoint, then scramble out of the car, run to the edge of the cliffs and just start clicking away with my camera (anyone notice the improved camera quality? Awww yeah.) Grand Canyon really is something grand, and I’m continually amazed by all the beautiful things that nature continues to offer. I just can’t get over some of these views.
Forgot to mention that I took this trip during winter break-which means snow covering parts of the landscape. But…it also means super freezing cold weather and numb fingers and a cold face from the wind.
Indian art from inside the watchtower.

Layers and layers of limestone and different rocks that have formed over millions of years.
Because sometimes views are best from the very edge.
And to end it all off with a bang, we watched the sunset from this viewpoint-accompanied by the magnificent Colorado River running through the bottom of the plateaus. It’s so inspiring to be standing over millions and billions of years of history laying out right in front of you. Amazing.
Have a lovely day ♥
