If you have been to the Grand Canyon then you understand when we say words and photos cannot begin to describe the formations,

the vastness, 

and the colors.

If you haven’t visited the Grand Canyon, you must go and see for yourself.

Having visited here twice before, Captain explained to ABN, you really can’t get a good perspective unless you hike down into the canyon. So we did; two miles down Bright Angel Trail

Two Mile Switchback
and two miles back up to the rim, stepping aside to let the mule train pass.

Sunday we set the alarm so we could watch the sun rise over the rim.

and attend worship service provided by three college students from A Christian Ministry in the National Parks (ACMNP)
View at Sunday Morning Worship Service
Even though the two of us made up the entire congregation, it was still a beautiful experience.

The Wanderer was parked at Mather Campground inside the park for 3 days and 4 nights with no electricity, water or sewage hook-up. With the solar panel upgrade, we did just fine. We were pleased to share the campground with a lot of young folks (most folks our age must have been in the full service campground or perhaps at one of the lodges.) And, of course, we had the company of many squirrels, ravens,

 mule deer and some elk.

It was a welcome break from the internet and television (hope we didn’t miss anything that was truly important.)
Refreshed, we said good-bye to one of God’s beautiful masterpieces

and are continuing our journey toward home.
