One of the goals on my bucket list is to visit all the seven wonders of the world so obviously, visiting the Grand Canyon was going to be a part of that. After a short 4-hour drive, we reached our destination and I was pumped. The price to get in was only $12 per car to get I believe which is relatively cheap if you have a car full.
We got out and started making our way around the canyon and hiking around one of the many trails for about 3 hours. I really loved looking at it but it was almost surreal. It was as though I was looking at a photo and it wasn’t actually there in front of me. I know many are shocked when I tell them this. It is beautiful, it can be stunning but it just falls flat for me. It is so large that it looks like a photo and like you can reach out and touch it. Obviously, I highly suggest not trying to do that as you can fall to your death and sadly, many die each year by not playing it safe.
I always come back to update my post every couple of years and this one still stands. I have been to the Grand Canyon a handful of times from friends traveling to see me. Overall, visiting the grand canyon is a must-see for many but it can all be done within 30 minutes still, in my opinion. Just a quick look then I would head to other areas around the state that have much more to offer such as antelope canyon, Sedona, and the Arizona White Mountains area.
