The Grand Canyon is the most beautiful landscape I have ever seen in my life. I came to realize that even the term ‘grand’ is an understatement to describe this amazing scenery.
There are no words to describe the grandeur of the Grand Canyon. I hope that these photos give justice to the awesome Grand Canyon.
Thanks to the bloggers who inspired me through their Grand Canyon photos and their recommend to see the Canyon from the South Rim. Although further away from the nearest view decks, the drive was well worth it.
The five-hour drive from the Las Vegas, Nevada was spectacular. I would have preferred myself as a passenger to enjoy these views at this time but we have no other choice. Nevertheless, I had the ‘grandest’ time, adventure and thrill in my life.
I have experienced a lot of ‘firsts’ in this trip that I will definitely treasure, as always, forever. First time to drive in the United States on a rented SUV and on my first 5 minutes after leaving the drive way, I was pulled-over by the police for driving on the other side of the road.
I had the shock of my life when I noticed that I am driving head-on the approaching vehicles, I made a U-turn immediately and in seconds a police car was behind me. I was so nervous thinking that I might go to jail or my international driver license revoked that would eventually postpone our trip to the Grand Canyon. But, just like the videos I see on TV’s Most Shocking, the police who was very pleasant and polite forgave me and let me go.
It was my first to navigate through a foreign highway with stricter traffic laws with a GPS. I really followed speed limits and traffic signs. I miss the voice of the ‘lady’ that commanded me to turn right, stay right and turn next left, etc.
First time to self-serve for gasoline. I made so many gas-stops because I certainly enjoyed it.
I wish to thank the Mabanta family for letting us in their home in Las Vegas and renting an SUV for us free of charge. And to their mom for accompanying us to this wonderful journey to the great state of Arizona.
Indeed, the Grand Canyon is stunning, this is certainly not just the first.
