I remember my first trip to the Grand Canyon. I had back-packed most of Utah's canyons and was expecting a "larger version" of those. I remember it taking very long to get there and how the landscape was super-flat with no topography and how I was getting frustrated having been in the car for so long. Then the ground seemed to end - a gash opened up almost 4000 feet deep such that you could almost peek into the heart of the Earth with every layer visible. The colors of the canyon walls were in shades of orange, yellow which turned into pinks, purples and blues within an hour. This was unreal.
The Grand Canyon remains unreal until you begin to hike in it and your mind begins to comprehend your surroundings. We plan on spending an overview day and the next day hiking into the Canyon.
Before we even arrive at the Grand Canyon we will drive you some of the most breath-taking canyon country in the world. Monument Valley is an icon of the American Desert Southwest with countless western movies being filmed here.
We will wrap up the tour with some short trips to Meteor Crater, the Painted Desert, Petrified Forest and Moki Point
