sunrise times two? Yes please.

After getting some sleep at the Knights Inn, we woke up and drove to see the Grand Canyon for the sunrise. We had to leave Willams, AZ at 2:30 to make it to the canyon for 4:30. As we drove in the dark and we got a glimpse of some reindeer! The southern rim of the Grand Canyon borders a National Forest that is home to bobcats and reindeer, just so you know because we didn’t until we ran into Rudolph.

We made it to the edge of the canyon && then it happened at 4:58, & it was amazing.

You can see the north star in the picture above and below.

After exploring for a while we decided we wanted another view of the canyon. We put the address for the SKYWALK in the GPS and was off. On the way we drove on route 66, was almost rammed by a bull and saw a sand storm.

After arriving at the Hualapai Indian Reservation, we had to drive

15 miles on an unpaved road through the grand canyon

to get to the skywalk.
Only to realize that only way to see the the canyon was to take a 2 hour bus tour from the reservation. We were crunched on time to get to vegas, so we bailed && the whole 4 hour detour to the SKYWALK was a waste. Oh, and also Gary got super dirty for driving 30 miles on unpaved road.
We left && didn’t look back on our failed attempt to see the canyon one more time. We arrived in Nevada around 14:00 and stopped to see the Hover Dam.

&& then we saw Las Vegas at last!

My amazing cousins Andrea & Brian totally set us up in the most beautiful suite in the Trump International Hotel. Who would have thought we would go from the one smiley face Extended-Stay bug infested hotel to a suite in Las Vegas in only 3 days. Thank you so much Andrea & Brian xoxo
Bath Time!!

Being a diva.

&& then we obviously napped for 5 hours the went out toSurrender at Encore
