South Rim, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, October 7, 2011
This was our second visit to the Grand Canyon, the first a quick look-and-see in 1978 on our way home to Idaho from a family visit in Arkansas. On this visit, we started out camping on the north rim, but left early because of the threat of early snow. It’s a long, round about drive to get from the north rim to the south. We managed to get in a couple more days exploring.
While other people love it – and I can certainly appreciate that – I don’t think that Grand Canyon will ever be one of our preferred destinations. It’s just so big and so much the same from one viewpoint to the next, especially from the south rim. If we ever go back, I’d prefer to visit the north rim.
