Tusayan - Grand Canyon, Arizona

Yes, we are at the Grand Canyon!  Here we are waiting for sunset and it was chilly as the sun was going down. We had a spectacular sunny day driving from viewpoint to viewpoint (as one does at the GCNP).   Some of the viewpoints can now only be seen if you take the Park Shuttle buses (free).  Progress they call it, I do not.  Along the way I looked for Andrée's lost camera but no luck.

Like Andrée .... I am here.  Grand Canyon
Driving between points we saw elk feeding but my special critter today was the little fellow below.

"enjoy the show".  We were flummoxed, we had no idea this was going to happen.  Moments later the Native drummer on stage started talking about the dancers who would be performing.  We were treated to a performance by the Four Corners Tribal Dancers (youth group).  This seven year old boy performed a solo dance, then a fifteen year old boy performed the intricate Hoop Dance, four dances all tolled.  So Bev has now seen some Tribal Dancing.  It was a special unexpected treat.


  1. Looks like you're having great fun! Great to see photos from a part of the world where I've never been! Enjoy!

  2. I am happy to share this journey with you. We are enjoying being here Emilene, thank you.

    Today we will visit Zion and Bryce National Parks (Utah). There will be much more over the next ten days .... so stay tuned. :)
