Day 2 and 3 Kirbys Go West

Well we made it to the Grand Canyon after another looooooonnnng day of driving. 

And this was first thing we see when we pull into the park so I’d say it was well worth the drive. 

But wait, there’s more…..once we park and walk into the visitor center we find these guys just roaming around.

Park Ranger: Ma’am, I’m going to need you to pick up your dog so that he doesn’t upset the animals.

Me: {thinking…hmmm, I’m not sure that’s really going to be a problem considering the animals are at the visitor’s center hanging out)  Yessir.

Jenna and I weren’t really sure what to expect leading up to seeing the Grand Canyon.

Jenna: So dad, is the Grand Canyon basically a hole in the ground??

Josh:  (silently chuckles) I can’t wait for you to see it.

Seriously, I DO NOT have words to describe the beauty and magnitude of what we saw.        IN. CRED. I. BLE!!   BREATHTAKING!!

….but I had NO IDEA how disoriented I would feel seeing my family getting close to the edge.  Ya’ll, I cannot even handle it.  It literally makes me sick and these two LOVE doing things like this.

Although, it makes me dizzy and nervous I just want to take a picture of everything to share the beauty with the world but pictures just don’t seem to it justice.

We were up early this morning to take a short hike down the canyon.  It was a wonderful trail but again it was hard for me to walk and look at the same time.  The first step I took I slid which made Jenna and Josh think about leaving me back at the campsite where I wouldn't be a danger to myself. 

We passed mules on this trail!!!  People ride mules down the canyon.  I wanted to tell all of them to get off because the were scaring me but I didn’t, I kept all my crazy thoughts to myself.   I want to know how many people fall off and die!  There are no rails around this thing it’s just this grand canyon that you can walk up to and look down into. 

We’ll be back this evening to experience another beautiful sunset, I'm sure it will be GRAND. ;-)
