A Visit To The Grand Canyon

This past Labor Day weekend, we took a drive to the Grand Canyon in Arizona.


We were in awe of it from our first peek through the trees as we drove next to it going into the park. We couldn’t come close to doing all the things there are to do there in the time we had, but took advantage of many of the scenic pull-off spots and took pictures and video. A few spots had trails you could walk on to get different views of the canyon. Pictures can’t describe how fascinating this place is.



If you’ve been wanting to go to the Grand Canyon, I would highly recommend it. If you are a camper and don’t want to spend a lot of money for a campsite, Ten-X Campground, just south of Tusayan at the South Rim would be a good choice. It was $10 per night with a minimum of 2 nights. They have tent camping and pull through sites. We were tenting it so I don’t know about power hook-ups. You can get water from spigots around the campground, they have “outhouse” type toilets, and the campsites are spacious. I was worried about it being kinda “desert-y” since it was Arizona, but there were plenty of trees and grass-even a little humidity during the day. Temperatures were in the 80′s during the day, and about 55 at night.

Here’s a link if you want information about the campground.
