Linking up with Becca at R We There Yet Mom? for Friday Daydreamin'.
One of the highlights of our trip was seeing The Grand Canyon.
Keith and I had never been there before so it was a first for our entire family!
I was surprised to learn that you have to drive through a national forest to get there. A two lane highway....through the mountains and your ears will pop. Bring gum.
There was snow!
We arrived in Tusayan around lunch time and we were super hungry! The kids saw a sign for pizza and we thought that sounded great! We Cook Pizza and Pasta is a great little spot to stop before you hit the park and they have a salad bar and booze too.
Keith and I were excited to try beer from The Grand Canyon Brewing Company. They're based out of Williams Arizona and we liked both the Amber Ale and Pilsner very much.
The Canyon is spectacular!
There is lots of walking to do so don't be a dork and wear your wedges.
Bring some water bottles so that you can fill them with the best tasting water you've ever had. They have a pretty neat book store but the visitor center seems to be under construction.
Further into the park is a store and a restaurant or two.
I'd love to stay in the park sometime or take a train ride there!
Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon?
