Thanksgiving 2007

I've lived in Las Vegas more than six months now, which has given me the enjoyment of being in the middle of an entirely new set of day trip opportunities. Yesterday I drove four hours to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona. I've seen a lot of places and cities in my short 40 years; but nothing takes my breath away quite like the Grand Canyon. This was my third visit; and still, entering the park and seeing it out the window (and avoiding hitting the Elk that had just crossed the road) gave me goose bumps all over again. Walking part of the way into the canyon on the trail is even more amazing. Here is a picture from the edge, followed by a picture of me freezing my ears off.
