Day 11 - Grand Canyon, Arizona

Today we explored Grand Canyon in the daytime and even stopped at the Visitor Center and watched the IMAX movie, which was amazing! Last night we got to see the amazing colors that the Grand Canyon creates with the setting sun and the views are indescribable! Words or pictures do not do it justice - you need to see it for yourself!

Gorgeous view of the Grand Canyon!

Today we went pack to a different viewpoint called, Yavapai Observation Point. It literally takes your breathe away to look at the Grand Canyon. We were so glad that we decided to make this a stopping point on our journey!

"Look at THAT hole!!" - Craig's exact words!

Our family looking at the Grand Canyon - what an experience for us to share!

After our time at the Grand Canyon came to an end, we headed East to Albuquerque, NM to visit with Craig's brother, Mark & his fiance, Mindy. Kylie couldn't wait to see "Uncle Mark & Aunt Mindy, my family!" She talked about seeing them ALL day! The trip took a little longer than we thought, but it was so great to see them!! And, of course, we took a picture of the New Mexico sign when we crossed the border.

Welcome to New Mexico - The Land of Enchantment!! It's a little of center, but a good shot anyway!

Tonight & tomorrow we are having fun with Mark & Mindy! We're headed to Old Town Albuquerque and then maybe lunch or dinner at the Top of the Mountain! It's going to be great to relax for a few days before heading off to Oklahoma City, OK. Stay tuned for pictures from Albuquerque! ~The Thayers & Mom-Mom :)
