The Grand Canyon - South Rim

The Grand Canyon is one of the most visited National Parks in the US. Yet, we didn't have a chance to visit it until last week. This was the first place we traveled outside of California. We tried to explore California as much as we could before venture out to a different state.

For some reason, we used to think that Grand Canyon is a dried up kind of place like other desert areas (namely Death Valley). But it turned out to be a lot greener than we expected. We arrived in the South Rim on the Labor day weekend and it was crowded; however the weather was really nice comfortable. It had been on and off for months and it just stopped a day or two before our visit (ugh, we wanted a lot of cloud). It was a sunny and hazy day. It was not a really great day weather-wise for photographing but we had a blast anyway.

We just visited a tiny part of this national park and it took a whole day. There are so many places that we planned to visit but didn't have a chance. We'd love to come back one day and explore different part of this wonderful place which has been reserved in time for billions of years.
