We continued our journey into Arizona and took some scenic shots along the way. We didn't have as long of a drive today and got to our hotel which is just outside of the entrance to the Grand Canyon around dinner time. After a yummy pizza & pasta dinner, we made it to the park to see the Canyon at sunset and it took our breathe away! Words nor pictures can truly express the beauty and feelings seeing this natural wonder with your own eyes! We'll save the shots of the Grand Canyon for tomorrow's entry, but here are some that we took along our drive today.
Welcome to Arizona!
The amazing scenery of Arizona!

That's all for tonight. Stay tuned for our pictures of the Grand Canyon tomorrow! Tomorrow after we tour the Canyon again, we are headed to Albuquerque, NM to visit Mark & Mindy. We'll be there until Sunday and we can't wait! And in just two short weeks, we'll be back to Albuquerque for their wedding!! Good night, for now! ~The Thayers & Mom-Mom :)
