We packed up as soon as we woke up, and then jumped in the car to give us as much time at the Grand Canyon as possible. However, there was one stop before that!
We took the road that goes towards Hoover Dam so we could at least say we had seen it, but on the way we noticed a sign for helicopter rides really cheap! So we stopped to check it out and Andrew was absolutely desperate to do it! So we got to have a 2 minute ride that shows you Lake Mead and then goes down again! What a fun experience, and now we can both say we've been in a helicopter!
And then we headed out for the last pat of our journey - to the Grand canyon - you could see this "big ditch" from 45 minutes away! I'll let the pictures tell the story...
When the sun started to set, we headed back to the campsite to set up our home away from home! That evening was just wonderful, so mild and peaceful! we enjoyed a BBQ, campfire and some smores! what a great idea!
