A must see for people that love the great outdoors!! It’s absolutely breathtaking!!! We stayed at the yavapai lodge, it was inside the park so really close to the beautiful views of the canyon. If you haven’t been... you need to go!

Once in a lifetime experience. No words can do justice to the vastness of this canyon! It was slightly chilly even for peak summer so would recommend carrying a jacket. Don't miss watching sunrise and sunset on Mather point.

There were shuttle busses running while we were there. Did not use any of them, so no details to share.
