First Look: Grand Canyon

Saturday, February 24th, 2007 | All Things, Travel

J’s flight into town — unlike mine — came in on schedule, so after I retrieved her at the airport, we were off. Grand Canyon, here we come! The four-hour drive north brought us through the Sonoran desert, deep into a landscape that changed from cacti and brush to snow-capped mountains.

Once at the park, we checked in at our Lodge, and headed straight to the Bright Angel just in time to register for our mule rides the following morning. After clearing our required weigh-in, we collected our canteens and bright yellow “Mule Rider” windbreakers, and then spent some time exploring the South Rim trail, just taking in our surroundings.

The sun was setting over the Canyon, and it was a majestic sight.
