This was my first trip to the Grand Canyon, Steve’s second. Honestly, I wasn’t very impressed. I’m not sure what it was exactly but it lacked the appeal of other National Parks that we had been to. Still, it looks pretty impressive on paper. Nearly 5 million people visit every year and it is a 1 mile down from the rims to the floor of the canyon. We were on the South Rim and ended up seeing the Desert Hermit, Hopi House, the Grand Canyon Train, The Watchtower and a few other nice spots along that rim.
