The Grand Canyon

The first weekend in December, we took Thursday and Friday off and took a four day trip up to see my Grandma in St. George. The first day we went to the Grand Canyon. The kids had never been, so we thought now that they are six and eight and will probably remember it, this would be a good time to go. It was a great time to go, as it was not very crowded at all. There were people there, but considering it gets 4.5 million visitors (according to the Visitor's Center) a year, it was very quiet. By 4:00 or so, there were two stops where there was no one there but us. There was a light dusting of snow from earlier that week which made things even more beautiful and was a huge highlight for the kids. I will post about the rest of the trip soon. Here are some photos of the day at the Grand Canyon:
