Where I stayed
It is really amazing to stand there on the edge and look down!
We arrived there about sunset so it was really nice, everythng was turned into thousand different kinds of red.
Later they had a so called telescope party, which was amazing! There were about 35 guys with their telescope, and there werent only lil telescopes like you have in your living rooms, there were huge ones that cost around 20thousand bucks, they had lil keyboards were they typed in for example Jupiter, and twom minutes later that thing was showing Jupiter, that was so cool! I've never seen the stars that close...
We spend 2 nights here in the Maswik Lodge.
We drove around to see some other places around the Grand Canyon, and the highlight, we took a helicopter for an hour to see all of that from above! Huiii that was high! The best moment was when we got to the edge,we were about 200 meters high, and from one second to the other there were about 1500meters...Amazing!
IF you are standing on one side and you are looking to the other one, it seems like it's only 2 kilometers or so, but on some places it was 13km !!!!!!! The next morning we got up around 4 I think to see the sunrise cause some people that we met told us that it was even nicer than a sundown, actually it was pretty cool, but I liked the sundown better, especially on a quiet place with a cold beer! ;-)
