Day 561 of Life on the Road as a Family, the Grand Canyon

IMG_1157The view of the north Kaibab trail from the Bright Angel  viewpoint.  That huge gap on the left is the canyon that Dan and Nate hiked, all the way out to the end and the Colorado River.  The far side is the south rim of the Grand Canyon.  It’s our last day here and I am cherishing every view we can take in.

IMG_1169We sat for awhile on the back porch of the lodge, enjoying that view!

IMG_1179The front drive and view of the Lodge.  They’ve recently put on a new roof and it’s disconcerting versus the very old interior. When you walk in the front door area under the flag, you go down a funky old staircase to a room that has huge windows and the best view of the canyon on the north rim!  Even when the lodge burned and they re-built it, they kept the floor plan that the original architect had designed.  It’s beautiful. Go visit.  It’ll be as hard for you to leave as it was us.

IMG_1204Back at our campsite, we made the last S’mores of our Grand Canyon week.  They were delicious!  We played board games (Eliza won), laughed about the dogs’ antics, and talked about every fun thing we’d done that week. Truly a dream come true that Dan and I got to take our kids to the Grand Canyon and we won’t soon forget our magical week.
