First off shout out to Mrs. H at The Weight of What’s Real for compiling a list of blog topics for us to post about!
Today’s topic: Famous landmark or place you’ve visited – did it live up to the hype?
The one place that I have visited that lived up to the hype and then some is the Grand Canyon. Myron and I visited it during our first anniversary trip in 2011. I know you’ve seen it in pictures or seen it on television but that truly does it no justice.
It is totally awe inspiring. To know that a river, cut a gorge into the earth that is over a mile deep and over a mile wide in some places is simply unbelievable.
There are various places that you can visit the Canyon, and the place we went to in Arizona (about a 2 hour drive from Vegas), is on the reservation of an Indian tribe who has lived there for centuries. And the tribe makes their money off the tourists that visit so I think that’s a total win. This is one of the things that makes living in the USA so great, all this natural beauty right within our borders!! You gotta get there and take your kids, if you have them.
Here are some pictures:
