      Mary Colter Suite: Worth it.

      Yes, you will pay (alot) to stay this close to the Canyon, but I felt it was worth it. It was my children's first visit to the Grand Canyon and I'm not sure if I'll return, so I decided to live it up. I reserved 11 months in advance and got the Mary Colter Suite on a weekend, one of only a few rooms with a balcony overlooking the Canyon. Well worth it to be able to set outside and look directly into the Canyon. The timing of the full moon gave us night views of the Canyon as well.
      The room itself was spacious with two queen-sized beds and nice-sized living room. My son slept on the living room sofa (which was not a pull out). The living room also had a round dinner table as well. The bathroom was gorgeous. There were two TVs in the room but we barely used them, as I spent us much time on the balcony as I could. The large balcony contained a round picnic table with four chairs and two cushioned chairs and a large storage bin. Free wifi.
      Staff we came in contact with were friendly but we didn't call on them much. There is no ice nearby - the only ice machine is in the basement which was a pain, but hey, this is a historic hotel.
      It was a short walk to the Bright Angel Trail and it was great to end a morning Rim Trail run right at the hotel with my wife looking down on me from the balcony.

      You'll get to see the Grand Canyon Village U.S. flag being raised and lowered right in front of you from your balcony and view the beautiful sunrise on the canyon in your PJs.
      You only live once - may as well live it up while visiting the Grand Canyon by staying in a suite at the El Tovar.

      Going deep in the Grand Canyon

      For the first morning in the Grand Canyon I woke up at 5 am to view the "5:23 am" sunrise as it brightened the walls of the canyon - it felt spiritual to see the sun splash the mile-deep canyon with a brilliant hue of orange which then quickly turned to yellow light as the sun rose higher. Inspiring. Awesome. Everyone should see this transformation …

      ... we shoud take (they didnt mention put your head between your kneess and say goodbye). We had a really nice pilot called adam who got us all ready for the flight with our saftey jackets and also helped buckle us in. We all had headphones where we could talk and hear Adam tell us all interesting facts about the canyon. As we began to get higher and higher it was so exciting! For the first 6 minutes or so we flew over the Kaibab national park, which is essentially ...

She then proceeded to dangle her boobs in front of my eye balls, I'm sure she was trying to stroke my cheek with them. Alls I could do was mouth Help me to Matt. Now I fully understand that is what ladies in strip clubs do. But I hadn't shown any interest in her to give me any kind of personal service! AND THEN After she has scarred me for life she had the cheek to look my dollar, wink and move ...
