The Grand Canyon never disappoints. First time back since 1975. Had a much better appreciation of it's beauty looking through the lens of a 58 year old. The shuttle buses are the only way to go for a nonhiker.

We took a Pink Jeep Tour to the Grand Canyon to the South Rim. The experience was a once in a lifetime one. It was our first time seeing the Canyon, but it wont be our last.

You are there, you see it but you can not believe in what you seeing. The views beyond the horizon are breathtaking. As many people already said here, it is something no postcards, films, or photos can give you the power of this place.

The South Rim is breathtaking. There is a paved trail (trail of time) that can accommodate strollers and wheelchairs. The views are amazing from every turn.

It is well worth the travel. We stayed at the park; used the buses to get around; you only have to walk a few feet to see a completely different view. Everyone was very kind and helpful. We did not go to the North Rim.
