After spending some time at Hoover Dam, Ryan and I drove down to the Grand Canyon. We ended up getting there pretty late in the evening, so we were not able to spend much time here before it was dark. I would love to go back sometime in the daylight and really be able to hike around the Grand Canyon and maybe even go on a horse ride. My first thought when I walked up to the viewing point was “Holy Cow, this is so huge!” The size of the Grand Canyon is so unbelievable.
Selfies at the Grand Canyon were a must 🙂
We also stopped at the Four Corners. I couldn’t find my selfie photo, but I do have one of Ryan!
The next stop was Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. We got in really late, found a hotel and went out the next morning to take a look at these massive structures. What is so neat about this place was that it was created by natural forces over the past 50 million years. Wind and water has eroded away the land and created so many structures in the same place. Most of these masterpieces range from 400 to 1,000 feet tall. It was such an awesome sight to see. In the photos below you will be able to see the East and West Mitten, the Three Sisters, and the Totem Pole.
I was actually shocked with how cold it got here during the nights. This road trip taught me so much. Patience is a virtue and you must have it when traveling. I also learned so much history about the USA. I love being able to travel all over the world, but It is nice to be able to travel your own country too. Reading about these places it in a textbook is good, but actually seeing it is so much better! I am so blessed to have had this opportunity!
