Wow What a place!!!
We were picked up at 6.30am in a Pink Jeep. We then picked up two other couples from other hotels and both were Aussies. We had a guided tour out to the Canyon. Passing by the Colorado River and Hoover Dam as well as Joshua Tree Forest. We were early to the drop off point so we were first in to the Canyon for the day. So Many photo opportunities!!! We stopped near Eagle point and saw lots of places movies have been taken and props that had been left behind like a car at the bottom on the Canyon. The tour guide knew the places to have us stand to get the best shots.We were able to hang back from the group just enough that I DID achieve my goal of doing the splits at the canyon!!  I would highly recommend Pink Jeep Tours if you are going over. Our Driver was heaps of fun and super friendly. We received lots of information!!  The boys went on the sky walk while us girls had a guided tour of the Indian reserve area. As part of the tour we were taken to a "Dude ranch" for some lunch. Pork Spare Ribs, Mash n Gravy and Cowboy beans. It was sooo good!! On the way in a cowboy threw a lasso over cam and caught him. Funny as!! They had a cowboy playing guitar in the room where we ate. He played a faster song so tif and I got up and danced. We had people filming us hehe we are famous now!! Then we headed outside for some gold panning and tomahawk throwing. Then we all got to shoot each other with blanks hehe Brendon is such a quick draw that they told him and tif to face back to back. They then turned Tif around to face bren with her gun drawn. They called go and Brendy nearly crapped his dacks LOL. We met "Norman" the bull from city slickers and the horse from some movie with Nicholas Cage in it. We also fed donkeys. Then headed back to the hover dam for a photo opportunity. And then home again!!
We had dinner at an American Bar with Massive plates of food including a foot long roll with a deep fried hot dog covered in cheese, bacon, onion and sour cream. Disgustingly delicious. 3 of us had to share it. We hear Mike Tyson was in the next room but we didn't see him. After a meal and a day like that there's nothing else to do but sleep!!
