Grand Canyon Sunrise

So – now let’s reverse the sunset … twelve hours later … time for sunrise …

Grand Canyon Sunset

After the helicopter flight we made it back to camp to pick up the others and continue back into the park – to get a good spot for sunset.

Kelly had organized pizzas – so while waiting for the sun to set we kept us busy by this welcome pizza feast.

Grand Canyon NP

From the Monument Valley we continued to the Grand Canyon. A stop at the visitor center and walk to the watch tower gave us a glimpse of what “GRAND” actually means.

Monument Valley … after the Rain

The most unexpected thing happened during our night in Monument Valley – it rained. So instead of enjoying the night sky or heading out early for a fabulous sunrise, we kind of slept in and only got out of the tents shortly before breakfast … which was also about when the rain stopped.
