I spent two days in the Grand Canyon on my recent travels and as expected was blown away by the views from the South Rim. Nothing prepares you for the vastness and beauty of the chasm – it’s 277 river miles (446km) long, up to 18 miles (29km) wide, and one mile (1.6km) deep.
I spent two nights at Yavapi Lodge in Grand Canyon Village, the hub that connects you with the shuttle buses that take you to key view points around the South Rim. The best views can be found along Hermits Rest Road, with Hopi and Powell Point being my favourites at sunset. When the sun fades, the colour of the Canyon changes dramatically, with the shadows contrasting with the warm red and golds of the light
The sunset walk between Powell Point at the Village was well paved and fairly effortless to trek around. Lucky since I wanted to wear another of my favourite casual and throw on dresses that evening, a grey dress from Splendid which is both uber fitted and uber comfortable. I could live in this dress, I tell you.
I hope you had a fabulous weekend, Blog Reader! xo
