Hubby drove 1,360 miles on this road trip! Thank goodness for our hybrid car, we saved a lot on gas. We had such a fun time that I can't wait till our next one! :) At one point a herd of elk were running along our car as we were heading towards the Grand Canyon at sunrise. I have always wanted to visit the Grand Canyon and it was spectacular. I'm so happy that I got to experience it! Words can't really describe the grandness of this place. (*love this shot I took of a Buddhist monk at the Grand Canyon! National Geographic here I come.)The canyon was created and carved by the Colorado River over a six million year period. I tried to take this picture while zooming in on the roaring rapids far below the canyons. Definitely a place you must see before you die.
