Prepare yourself for an overload of pictures… I had a hard time narrowing down these to a manageable selection as the second week was one of the best weeks nature wise. You might remember the first week ended in Vegas, and after taking a much needed bath and pampering ourselves with great food and pool days we headed to the Grand Canyon. We’ve been there before and were doubting about going back (it’s too touristy), but since it was on our way we decided it would be a pity to ignore such beauty. So we camped one night at Matter campground (do make reservations ahead, especially when you’re visiting during the weekends) and took the Bright Angel trail. No matter how touristy, the views will leave you breathless.
After the Grand Canyon we went to Page and made a hotel stop there. Lounging at the pool and being completely useless (loved it!). During the night we visited the Horseshoe Bend and made a campfire while we ate our dinner there. Normally this is a pretty crowded place, but if you walk along the rim to the west you’ll find enough secluded spots to see the sun set.
