The Grand Canyon Day Trip

Freight Train

Today I feel as if I’ve been hit by a freight train. It seemed simple enough to drive four hours to the Grand Canyon. Take the shuttle to each of the sites and drive back home. And we did just that!

The Grand Canyon is beautiful as always. I have fond memories of taking these shuttles when I was a Girl Scout camping here with my troop when I was a teenager. Then we stayed a week, I think.

Ironically the shuttle started at the trail that takes you down to the Colorado River. My troop hiked this, but we only went 3 miles down. That climb back up was a killer. This trip we avoided it.

This is the part of the Canyon I remember from that trip as a Scout.

Hopping on and off the shuttle became progressively more difficult for me. That step up and down seemed higher each time. My legs seemed heavier the longer I was on them.

I was so exhausted that I stopped taking photos. I figured that Ralph and Colleen we’re taking plenty of memories.

We stopped for one final photograph before leaving the park. I look tired. I closed all my rings on my iWatch at this point.

Oh during the ride, I read Battleground by Jim Butcher. I reached the halfway point as we stopped at a rest stop. I started balling my eyes out. That is all I am going to say in terms of spoilers about this book.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
