40×40 list: #1 Go to the Grand Canyon

860M

I've crossed number one off my 40×40 list. Wednesday morning, Cathy and I left for the small Route 66 town of Williams. We stayed the night there and then, Thursday morning, boarded the Grand Canyon train to make the three hour journey to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

We arrived by lunchtime and took a bus tour of the South Rim. It was breathtaking. We spent Thursday and Friday at the Canyon and took the return trip on the train Friday evening.

    I’ve been twice, once in the MINI. Nothing like driving around that area in a MINI and of course there is nothing like that big hole in the ground. Congrats on #1!

    OH MY WORD. That is amazing. My boyfriend keeps saying ‘let’s go to the Grand Canyon’ and I keep saying there are loads of other places I want to go first. Not any more.
    Good for you and your exciting big list!

    Beth! It was amazing! I've never seen anything like it before. If/when you do decide to see it, you are more than welcome to stay at my place. I think the Phoenix airport is the closest international airport and then it'sĀ  a 4 hour drive from here. My door is always open! šŸ™‚
