We didn’t just want this to be another trip to Vegas where we stayed on the Strip and never ventured outside the casinos. So we decided to make the first half of the trip the sight seeing portion. We also decided that we were going to rent a car and drive out to the western edge of the Grand Canyon. We are both adults and had yet to see one of the iconic landmarks in the United States of America! We live in a beautiful country and as Americans, we don’t take advantage of all the natural wonders our nation has to offer. Not this time! We gassed up and rolled out!
First up, Hoover Dam!!
The next day had us getting up REALLY early (TIH is NOT a morning individual) to make the 2.5 hour trip to the Hualapai Reservation (which is about 6000 ft above sea level) to go to the western edge of the Grand Canyon and walk the Skywalk and visit Eagle Point on the canyon.
This is the Skywalk and it is 4000 ft above the canyon floor. If you have a intense fear of heights, it is NOT recommended. It is made of glass and steel and can support the weight of TWO jet planes.
Some more pictures from Eagle Point on the Grand Canyon:
All I can say is that we live in a beautiful country and I encourage everyone to try to take advantage of it. Nature is truly amazing.
In my next post, we’ll head back to the Strip and see a bit of the Las Vegas that everyone knows and loves.
Hope ya’ll liked the pictures!!!
