The Grand Canyon

Well, we made it to the Grand Canyon! Stopped and saw the IMAX film of the Canyon at the National Geographic was great. We drove up with no problems and found parking quite convenient. We did a bit of hiking along the rim trail and had a great encounter with some rock climbers. As a public service they were over the rim picking up stuff thrown by tourists...they had gotten two 5 gallon buckets of coins! The condors eat them and die...they also found dog tags, a blackberry, an ammunition box with someone's ashes and other things! We had a delightful lunch at Bright Angel Lodge right on the rim of the canyon.
As by Xanterra! They do a great job.
We also stopped at a crafts fair put on each weekend by the Navajo Indians...the little girl was dancing to her grandfather's drum and chanting...of course, we had to put money in the tip jar. Some of the jewelry was beautiful, but I'm looking for something to knock my socks off...and we're going to Sedona tomorrow! That's Monday....keep watching!
