Grand Canyon

It’s not the widest, it’s not the deepest and it’s not the longest but in all other respects, it is the Grand Canyon. I hadn’t been there since I was very young and as I had other business in Arizona, I leapt at the opportunity to get another viewing. In its typical manner, the park didn’t disappoint and was even surprising.

The South Rim has more amenities that I remember, replete with restaurants and shops but also had a very handy shuttle system to get you to all points of interest if you had already burnt out your legs on a hike. The paths we’re well kept complete with interactive exhibits and colorful information. I had forgotten that it is at 6,000 feet and we were even treated to a brief snow storm one evening making for some great photos the next day.

 
 
I tested out a consumer end 360° camera for a couple of shots. Just click and drag.
