Visiting Grand Canyon


The breathtaking view of the Grand Canyon


My first visit to the breathtaking Grand Canyon was when I was 13 years old.   I had a friend who lived in Phoenix and begged me to visit her, with the promise that her family would make a trip to Grand Canyon while I was there.    After scraping together most of the cost of the plane ticket to AZ from babysitting funds, I miraculously convinced my parents to let me go.   I will always remember how I felt on that trip – there were no words.  I’d never experienced the beauty that was before me and it was just stunning.

Thirty-three years later, I had the chance to travel there again – this time with my family.    My sister–in-law and her husband live in Mesa, AZ and we planned a family trip to visit, along with an outing to Grand Canyon.  My kids, nor my husband, had ever been there before.   I knew what was waiting for them – that first view when you are literally just paralyzed realizing how utterly beautiful this natural wonder truly is.   I wasn’t disappointed – the look on their amazed faces, just standing on the rim soaking in the majesty.   I let them go first so I could watch their stunned expressions.   It was a moment in time I won’t forget.    Joining them, we all stood in silence at the wonder of Mother Nature.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit, I can assure you there will be no disappointment.
