“My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:”
1st John 2:1
Grand Canyon National Park, in Arizona, is home to much of the immense Grand Canyon, with its layered bands of red rock revealing millions of years of geological history. Viewpoints include Mather Point, Yavapai Observation Station and architect Mary Colter’s Lookout Studio and her Desert View Watchtower. Lipan Point, with wide views of the canyon and Colorado River, is a popular, especially at sunrise and sunset.
Grand Canyon National Park is located in northern Arizona, just south of the Utah border. This is a “must see” place. This is an absolutely mind blowing canyon, but a lot people think it’s just a big hole in the ground. Start at the visitors and take a shuttle bus tour to the east end of the park. There are eight different stops that provide eight different views of the canyon. The free shuttle tour is worth taking. I was 39 years old when I hiked down to Phantom Ranch, spent the night in one of the cabins, and hiked out the next day with Jennifer. It was a beautiful hike down, but the hike out was torturous and took us six hours to reach the canyon rim (four hours to hike down). We could not walk normally for three days afterwards. As you hike down you can see the color change from the different layers of rock. If you like to hike, then the Grand Canyon has to be one of the ultimate hikes.
