A Travellerspoint blog



sunny 17 °C


Although we had rented a car, we decided to book a tour to the Grand Canyon. It was a great decision. With no worries about navigation, we were both able to sit back, relax and enjoy the incredible views. We would not hesitate to recommend Pink Jeep Tours for this experience.

We were picked up at 8 am and did not return until about 6:30. The drive was almost 2 hours each way but was great. It took us through beautiful Oak Canyon and the ever-changing landscape that has long left the cacti behind and brought us into snowy forests. Fortunately we had a gorgeous day with sunshine which was much better than a couple weeks ago when, according to our guide, it was well below zero with 3 feet of snow.

I even got to see 2 roadrunners at one of our stops.


Our tour of the canyon had us enter the park from the south east rim and allowed for many stops along the south rim. We even enjoyed a delicious picnic lunch on the edge of the Canyon while giant raven waited patiently for a sample.


I was pleasantly surprised that my fear of height and vertigo was almost non-existent. Something about the hundreds of million year old layers in the rock make you feel like you don’t have that far to fall. Still, I, as always, was a rule follower and stayed inside the guard rails.

Here are some shots from our amazing day. It may just look like a whole bunch of rocks but it really is spectacular. I am not much of a landscape photographer and it is really impossible to capture the canyon’s grandeur.
