We are after all the Grand Canyon State.
This is a MUST see. It is one of the natural wonders of our world, and it is right here in our back yard.
Yes, you can make it up there in a day, but I really suggest planning on spending the night so you can explore and hike a little.
Take your time.
Watch the sun set!
Let me repeat that last suggestion again. Watch the sun set! Pick a viewpoint, any of them will do, and get there at least an hour before sunset. Find a spot to sit and watch the show. As the sun dips lower the canyon changes, every minute, and it is more beautiful by the moment.
I think it is natures best movie.
Plan on plenty of ooooohing and aaahhhhhing
