We finally made the six hour trip to Grand Canyon National Park. It is so close to us, yet we never have taken the time to go there. We tend to visit places with much less people, like last summer when we went to the Needles District of Canyonlands and only saw five people. The Grand Canyon was busy, but everyone was pretty spread out all over the park. I've never seen so many cameras in my life! Here are several photos of one of the most photographed places in the world.
Our first stop was at the Desert View Watchtower.
The rest of these photos are from the viewpoints around the South Rim.

Lastly, here are a few really touristy photos of us!
Don't worry, Maralee and I didn't let anyone get too close to the edge!
