Tues, September 23

We ventured north to the Grand Canyon today.  The view was spectacular, and the weather was refreshing.  September is definitely a great time to visit these National Parks!

At the Desert View point, there is the Watch Tower.  It provides a great view of the eastern end of the South Rim, but it is also a fascinating place in and of itself.

John & Shannon enjoyed the view from the top of the tower.

Inside the building were pictographs and more petroglyphs--beautiful ancient art work.

How nice to see that someone acknowledges the Creator in this awesome place.

Bunny was speechless over the sight.

The crew posed for a photo op.

The drive back to Flagstaff was alive with colorful fields of flowers.  

We drove 187 miles in all today.
