Grand Canyon trip

April 9th, 2010 by Jeff Leave a reply »

My friend Heather came to visit from Pennsylvania last weekend, and I’d promised her we could go up to the Grand Canyon since she’d never seen it. We had planned on couch surfing with some strangers in Flagstaff for a few nights, but they backed out at the last minute. My uncle Kevin pulled through and gave us both a place to crash, and we were able to spend a full day at the GC. Thanks again!

Unfortunately it’s tough to explain to someone who has never been there just how vast the canyon is. Even pictures don’t really do it justice. I took a few pictures with the widest lens I have, the stock 18-55mm, but none of them turned out well (too much barrel distortion). So you’ll just have to use your imagination. These are some of the more interesting vignettes.

On the way back through the east exit, we drove by a scenic outlook of one of the tributaries, called the Little Colorado. Sunset was approaching and we got out to take some last-minute photos.

    I had a blast seeing the beautiful state of Arizona, brief as it was. Thanks, Jeff! Also, thanks to everyone else who hosted/cooked/hung out/made the week that much more awesome. A++ experience, would roadtrip again.
