Penny here, again! Here is my trip to Arizona, part two.
Read part one here
The next day we drove up to the Grand Canyon! It was absolutely gorgeous--and huge. They don't call it the "Grand" Canyon for nothing! Everywhere I looked I could see it.
Isn't it beautiful?
Look how tiny I am compared to it! I always feel small (I am only 18 inches tall!) but this made me feel even littler. :)
TADA! I was actually a bit afraid of falling into the Grand Canyon, but my person made sure I'd stay close to her. :)
You might not be able to tell in the pictures, but it was actually very windy despite the heat. I had to stop to rest a few times and I could hear the breeze echoing off the canyon!
Really though, isn't it gorgeous?
Doesn't this rock formation look like a llama?
I walked down the path a bit more to find the observation deck.
In the observation deck I could touch some of the different rocks at the bottom of the canyon, and learn about a few of them, too!
Here I am! I'm standing among the layers of the canyon.
I also got a cool little sticker before heading off to lunch. :)
After lunch we headed down to this museum-y like house where they used to make movies! I did get a little nervous once I saw how close to the edge it was, but thankfully there was a safety gate so no one could fall in.
I explored the museum and even found some of the cameras and equipment the filmmakers used to use years and years ago. In this picture I'm sitting on a film case! (it was in a glass box, though. ^_^)
I posed for one last picture before we left the Grand Canyon, but boy, it sure was an experience I'll never forget! Standing on the edge I peered into the canyon, drilling the view into my head so I'd never forget it.
Well, that's it for part two! Stay tuned for my final post of my vacation!
