September 22 + 23, 2012
Happy Thanksgiving! We are so thankful for many things this year. Our trip and what it has meant to us. Reconnecting with family and seeing BREATHTAKING places, like what we are sharing today. We are thankful for safety during our 29,000+ miles on the road. God has been showing us a little piece of what He’s like in all the beauty we continue to see.
It’s hard to believe that I’m already writing about the Grand Canyon. We returned to Tennessee shortly after this and I’m coming to terms with the fact that our road trip has come to a close (for now). But that story is for another day. 🙂 On to the Grand Canyon!
We decided to check out the North Rim, since it was more on our way than the South Rim, and figured we’d have an easier time visiting the South Rim in the future. So here we are! We were blessed with some seriously perfect weather. The Aspen trees were yellow and it really didn’t feel like we were in a giant desert. We saw a Kaibab squirrel – they don’t hibernate and they have black bodies with a white tail. We drove for two hours down a dirt 4×4 road to Point Sublime to camp for the night. It is said to be one of the most breathtaking vistas anywhere in the Grand Canyon. We watched the sunset and then woke up early to watch the sunrise. Jonathan shot some 35mm and the shots turned out really fun. The digital scans are a terrible quality, but I posted a few on here anyway at the end of the post. 🙂
