We drove back to the canyon for a second hike. I was impressed by Trav's ability to sleep anywhere.
In the desert, everything is flat. It's crazy for this East Coast girl to be able to see everything in every direction! I'm used to being able to pretend that this world is small!
So this hike took us into the canyon.
Here's what it looked like going down...
And here's what it looked like coming back up! It was like climbing a really really long staircase that was made of dust. We didn't hike too long because we knew going back up would be a bitch and a half.
Here is me climbing on some rocks.
Our hike took us to Ooh Ahh Point! It was 3 miles, and about an hour down, and 2 or 3 back up. The lookout was really worth it, though!
Since the Grand Canyon is huge on tourism, there were lots of foreigners there. People kept walking by us and we tried guessing what language they were speaking.
This picture makes it look surprisingly not terrifying to be sitting on the edge of the freaking abyss.
It rained on us a couple times!
Our flight home was at 7am, and since we had to drive to Phoenix, we had to leave at 3 in the morning! I was exhausted.
I loved the Grand Canyon, and I'm so glad we got to go. But it's always nice to be home after a trip! I'm glad to sleep in my own bed and hug my cat!
