Monday May 21 Day 20 – Grand Canyon is so appropriately named because it is, well, grand in so many ways. Nothing we’ve seen touches it in overall size, beauty, vistas, colors, ruggedness, history, sunrises, sunsets, night-skies, etc. Earl and Ethel took five photos of the North Rim. We set out to duplicate two, Angel’s Window at Cape Royal and Ethel at Bright Angel Point.
Grand Canyon lodging reservations are usually made a year in advance. We had the good fortune two weeks before our visit of calling the lodging office and hearing that a cancellation had occurred. We did our happy dance! A day later we put in for dinner reservations at the lodge’s famed dining room overlooking the canyons. We got in there as well! We made plans for our 35th wedding anniversary meal there and invited Earl and Ethel to the table using their pictures. Happy dance number two! (We had breakfast there too!)
