It's so beautiful, isn't it?
The last night we were there at the Grand Canyon, we made it a point to watch the sunset.
The first time we planned this, we failed rather miserably. The hotel we stayed in, Maswix, is supposed to be less than 1/4 mile from the canyon rim.
On our first attempt to watch the sunset, we walked from our hotel, but we couldn't find the rim. Yeah, I know--it's a huge rim, how can we miss it?
Well, we were lost. We had walked the wrong way and was going away from the rim. When we finally got to the rim, the sun had already set. Rats!!! We missed the sunset.
So the next day (our last day there), we planned way ahead! We caught the bus to Hopi Point, after overhearing the bus driver say to somebody else that it was THE BEST place to watch the sunset. HA! We thought. Now we can't get lost--because we'll take the bus to THE BEST place to watch it.
The sun was going to set at 7:36pm or thereabouts, so by 6pm, we were on the bus to Hopi Point.
It was THE BEST place too!!! It was very windy and cold but the sunset was so beautiful.
After we got back to our hotel, we went to the cafeteria there and had hot chocolate! Hmmmmm, so yummy and warm to the tummy!
It had been a great Grand Canyon day!
