Grand Canyon

Hello there!

Can’t believe it’s almost officially fall next week. I wish we could bottle up summer.

At least in a form of a blog post. Here it goes!

There’s a definite beauty that surrounds our universe — often indescribable. We found one of them in Grand Canyon. It literally blew our minds and I hope these photos depicts our feelings that day — a surreal one for sure.

We were at the South Rim.

Sitting on a ledge for a photo was definitely risky. I’m nauseous just gazing at this photo.

At one point, we met a couple who just returned from hiking a mile into the canyons. Mind-boggling. Dangerous. Treacherous. Adventurous.

None of the noun describes me.

“The Grand Canyon fills me with awe. It is beyond comparison—beyond description; absolutely unparalleled throughout the wide world.” — Theodore Roosevelt

 

Some tips when traveling to the Grand Canyon:

Take South rim. It’s much more accessible all year round than North rim.

Park your car and take the shuttle bus service up to the canyon.

Wear comfy shoes, clothes, bring a hat, water bottles and a camera.

Watch your step — don’t go too close to the ledge just for a photo.

 

 

One of many beautiful sunsets we’ve ever came across. I didn’t want to leave. Well, not until it was all over.

 

Who knows where life would lead us next. Wait and watch out for the next adventure ;)

Have you been to the Grand Canyon? Or any one of the 7 natural wonders of the world? What would you miss more in summer and looking forward too in fall?

I would miss summer produce and definitely looking forward to cooler temperatures with a pumpkin spice latte in tow. There’s a silver lining in every situation :)

wow Kiran, I heard legend of the canyon, I have never been there, in general the US is a alien world to me. Your photos captured my full attention. I cant stop looking at the endless canyon landscape and the color layers nature formed over 100 thousand of years. I hope I ll get the chance to visit this place in the future, something like that needs to be in the bucket list.

haha the bollywood dance in the grand canyon. u should have made a video! ;)

Hi Kiran, you are very brave that, you have taken a photo on a ledge. Really it was very risky i think so. But your travel at grand canyon is also very knowledgeable to us. Thanks.

I heard so much on Grand Canyon from my friends who have been here before. Strange some of them did not appreciate what the saw while others had plenty of interesting sharing to do with you. Your pics and review confirms that I will want to head to Grand Canyon because I love nature and yes also the sunset as well as sunrise. Being in such places are the moments in life you feel so good and admire them.

Kiran. Are you still in AZ? I have lots of recommendations as I lived there for a bit. The dessert sunsets are truly spectacular. And have you been to Sedona and Prescott yet?

It’s true that the South Rim is more accessible, but it’s also too crowded. If you want to really enjoy the Canyon, you have to see the North Rim. Stay in those cabins right on the slope of the Canyon, enjoy a cup of tea / coffee in the morning as you sit and watch the sun rise over the Canyon (on proper chairs, no ledges required). And on the way, stop at a little place called Page, AZ and walk into Antelope Canyon. Now that’s something you’ll never forget.

In a matter of days he was calling the whole family and touting the benefits
of his new fresh juice routine. I have tested out some of the cheap
wheatgrass juicerr machines on tthe market for under
$100 andd i can say, they are not worth it. This is because,
with the fiber removed, nutrients cann be easily annd quickly absorbed
into the bloodstream without going through the process of digestion.
