Day 4 – Grand Canyon

We spent the day at the south rim of the Grand Canyon and have loads more pictures! We travelled a little east & a lot west along the rim. We used the park shuttle bus for all our trips today.

The Canyon can also be visited on the North Rim which is 1,000 feet higher, and on the West Rim which has a newish skywalk viewing platform.

We nearly had a little crisis. Pádraig had been wearing sunglasses at sunset. We were waiting on the last shuttle to leave the park (9.30pm) and the sun had just set, when Pádraig had dropped his ordinary glasses. We went back up to the Point where we had been viewing the sunset. I searched, but didn’t see them, but thankfully Pádraig spotted them on the ground near where we had taken this photograph.

To bed with us.  Next stop, Monument Valley.
