* ARIZONA: GRAND IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT *

The Grand Canyon – is really REALLY GRAND. They don’t lie when they say it. This had always been one of those places that I had always wanted to visit. I needed to see this for myself, AND I’m so glad I did. When we finally got there, my eyes were glued to the scenery around me; it just went on for miles and miles you couldn’t see the end of it. The week before we came on this trip I did my homework and watched a whole documentary on how the Grand Canyon was form- YUP, I was that obsessive to know so much about it. Like everyone always tells you… you have to see it in person, it’s the real deal. Pictures will not do it justice- trust me, and go.

MAR 3: Yesterday was amazing BUT a bit scary as well. To keep the long story short, I was dying to watch the sunset so we stayed until about 7:30pm then realized we had to put gas in the car, we were running short. The closest gas station was about 30mins in the park. It takes about 40mins to get OUT OF THE PARK; it’s that big. We finished putting gas around 8ish- and you can imagine what happened next. Darker and darker skies approached us until it was pitch black and with that came the sighting of a mountain lion, a wolf and an elk! What a crazy nigh that was, but we’er alive so we made it! Shout out to my friend who put up with my crazy ideas!
ANYWAYS, the next day we just spent most of the day walking around taking it easy, soaking in the view.
