Grand Canyon

Is an amazing place! We were lucky enough to plan a quick trip to Vegas and the Grand Canyon last week. I can't say that I enjoyed Vegas - too busy, dusty and HOT!!! I'm not much of a gambler and I found the casinos a little depressing. However I did go shopping and I got 2 new pairs of shoes... So I was very happy.
We got up early on Wednesday and drove to the Grand Canyon, stopping at Hoover Dam along the way. It was a long drive, especially when cars in front were driving well under the legal limit. We finally arrived!! It was beautiful and amazing and lots of other descriptive words that I can't think of at the moment.
I couldn't get over people, like the man in the photo above who walk out to the edge. I'm not afraid of heights.... but I was holding onto the railing with dear life. This man made me very nervous. I read a sign that said that people rarely fall and if they do they are unlikely to survive - not a risk I'm going to take for a photo.
We drove to Desert View, which was fantastic, they have a watchtower - we bought some art (we've finally realised we are leaving and should buy some things to remember our time in America (we will be remembering our time until we lose all the weight we have gained since being here)).
Anyway Scott wants a cup of tea and he wants me to make it... boys....
