The Grand Canyon.

Have you ever found yourself captured in a moment when you felt small? Maybe it was a situation, or a life event, or maybe like in this case a place. Mike and I ventured out to the Grand Canyon early Wednesday morning and I can't remember too many times I have ever felt that small. The Grand Canyon has a way of putting into perspective your place in the universe. We felt so small but were surrounded by such a powerful peacefulness. Because we went during the fall (I'm sure there would be a completely different experience in the summer) we only saw a few other people so most of the time it just felt like us and nature. It's really hard to put it in to words how grand it really all is so I'll let the pictures do the talking.

This was truly a great road trip. We were already in Vegas for work (we work for the same company) so taking advantage of the time there to see the Grand Canyon was really a no brain-er. We got up at 3am and got back around 4pm just in time for dinner! It was great. I made up new dance moves while Mike drove and we laughed the entire trip. We visited the North Rim and have already agreed we need to go back again to see more, especially of the South Rim which is the more commercial side. We're totally on a see the USA kick right now. I'm trying to talk Mike into going to see the Red Wood Forest this weekend. I want to see the world and I want to see it now!
