Grand Canyon

After saying our goodbyes in Lake Powell, we made the 3 hour drive to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

AMAZING.

(the tears in Josh’s eyes are the indication of how fearful of heights he is…)

We went for a short hike, then watched the amazing sunset.

We had dinner, eating in our little traditional log cabins (we had to have two to fit us all), and were all exhausted. In fact, I’m pretty sure Josh fell asleep while eating the pizza.

We woke up to catch the amazing sunrise (except for Josh, who was still zonked), and then later that morning, we went for a longer hike.

(Rob is not exaggerating when he is holding on for dear life either. He also has a big fear of heights!)

We headed out pretty early (of course we also hit the gift shop), saw a cool herd of bison, and then met up with our cousins in St George for a quick drink at Swig (where you can get all these cool mixes of drinks!)

It was so nice to “de brief” with them, share a few more laughs, and then some more tearful goodbyes:( So glad we got to spend so much time with them. I love that family so much!!!!

We visited Hoover Dam, before heading into Sin City (as my kids enjoyed calling it!)

We headed from remote and natural beauty…to chaos Vegas style….
