Grand Canyon AZ 2017

Postby Faster horses » Fri Jan 05, 2018 1:18 pm

Grand Canyon. It was on our bucket list. Something spectacular, but I think the whole world was there the same time we were. I have never seen so many people and lots were Orientals. Christmas Eve day, 2017. No way could photos from an amateur (me) capture the magnificent views of the Grand Canyon.

A few of the people. You couldn't get away from them. Lots of times there was no place to park--even in the parking lots.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

I've seen it many times and each time it is "breath taking."

There isn't enough grass here to sustain a rabbit, let alone a mustang. We haven't seen any wildlife, not even a
snake. :?
We are supposed to be heading to where there are some wild burros in a few days. I'll take some pictures of
them if it pans out. I heard they eat the green bark on some of the brush, so you know that's about all there
is for them to eat. Their systems must be used to it for them to still be around.

I think that the view from where you are is much better than the one that people drive to that's a relatively short trip from Las Vegas. Contrast how it really is to the ending of Thelma and Louise. :D
