Grand Canyon

*this post has been amended.

There are no words for the beauty I saw today. The Grand Canyon has been on my list of places I need to get to. Believe me it is a must see! The size, the bends and folds in the rocks seemed unreal. I was really inspired by the purples, red, and oranges of the rocks. We did a short 3 mile hike on Bright Angel Trail. It took us longer than expected as the trail was quite icy. We also walked about a mile on the Rim Trail, which gave the best views into the Canyon. Both the boyfriend and I agreed we have to return to hike along the canyon floor. Next stop Taos, NM!

On the Road

I convinced my boyfriend that we should take a road trip over our holiday break. We decided on the Grand Canyon and Northern New Mexico. The Grand Canyon has been on my list of places to get to in the USA for awhile.  So 12 hours later we made it to Flagstaff, AZ! The drive was really not that bad. There was lots of interesting scenery to admire. I also passed the time with my new Christmas toy! Santa brought me a Wonder Knitter. I wanted to make some projects with i-cord and this is a simple little tool to help the job along. The tool is easy to use, but the tension is a little loose. Look forward to future posts of my completed projects 🙂 Next stop…Grand Canyon!
