On my trip to Las Vegas last summer, I was able to go on a dream come true side trip to Arizona home of The Grand Canyon.
Grand Canyon is one of the most astonishing natural wonders in the world. Situated in the state of Arizona, USA.
“It is one of the deepest gorges on Earth with an average depth of one mile (1.6km) and an average width of ten miles (16km). The canyon was carved over the past 6 million years by the action of the Colorado River as it drops over 2,200 feet (670m) along the 277-mile (446 km) length of the gorge.”
Our half day tour by Adventure Photo Tours which was led by an amazing and intelligent tour guide named Eli takes you from Las Vegas to the most popular area of the Grand Canyon where you can see the most picture-perfect viewpoints of all, where you can view the widest and deepest portions of the Grand Canyon. Before reaching the Grand Canyon South Rim we get a chance to stop at Hoover Dam, the Route 66 Museum, and Locomotive Park.
Enjoy these photos shot during our trip.
