THE GRAND CANYON, SOUTH RIM, ARIZONA

The Grand Canyon is soooo AMAZING!!!

This place has been on my bucket list since a young child. I vowed to myself long ago that I would see this place before I died some day, and as soon as we knew we would be driving West it was placed at the top of the list of stops along the way. I knew wouldn’t overcome my fear of heights prior to seeing this place but I was prepared for what was in store. An to be completely honest, it was simple stunning an beyond breathtaking. The sky looked like it rolled on forever and the canyon appeared to have no end to it’s great depths. I stood clear of the edge, which is A-ok with me, though you could freely walk by it and take photos to your liking. And my better half walked closer than myself to snap a few prime photos (thanks babe) but all in all it was beyond anything I had ever imagined or dreamt up.

And to add a little extra icing on top of the cake, my boyfriend found a quiet area where we both sat to rest and he the popped the question an proposed, an of course I said yes!!! An the rest of the walk thru the canyon was a slight blur of excitement and shock as we grinned happily on our walk back to the car.

I highly recommend the South Rim. It was definitely a tourist area, which was ok with us, but it had some great views and you could freely hike if you wanted (felt comfortable) to do so. Enjoy!

WHERE'S THERE 15 : HORSESHOE BEND, PAGE ARIZONA

We had seen photos of Horseshoe Bend but honestly didn’t realize it was so close to Antelope Canyon, so while leaving the city of Page we almost missed this site. If you blink while driving you will literally drive past the sign off the side of the highway as there is no visual of this amazing place from the car. You pull off the road into a dirt lot, hike up a hill to the top, (bring water, it's a hike and hot in the summers!) walk over the hill an down to the edge where you will see the canyons an Horseshoe Bend. For those fearful of heights (hand raised, this girl right here!) be warned there are no rails holding you back from falling so where some good ole sneakers. Also there were so many people and families braving it to sit on the edge and dangle their legs off for that candid photo that I had to turn and walk away as I worried some. This place though, so beautiful and I’m so glad it was a stop on our drive... but I’ll gladly snap my photo 10 feet from the edge with a selfie stick if needed, thank you. ;)

ANTELOPE CANYON, PAGE ARIZONA

High on our bucket list was Lower Antelope Canyon, also known as “ Hazdistaz√≠ or Spiral Rock Arches”. We had seen many photos of this place but honestly after seeing a few photo featured by our talented photographer friend we were a bit unsure of it’s natural beauty an if we’d even be able to capture it in all it's awe. This canyon is known as a slot canyon, which was formed over time by the erosion of flash floods in the high monsoon seasons. As we approached the canyons edge, our guided group climbed 5 flights down into the earth and low and behold it was one of the most magical places we’ve ever seen. The way the light came into the space was beyond real an we were amazed. I couldn’t believe that no matter how bad of a photo I thought I took, each one was better than the last. I highly recommend the early morning tour hours when the light is shining down into the canyon… and well… you be the judge of the photos. We were pretty pleased with our trip there and we’ll surely be back. Enjoy!
