From there we went to the Grand Canyon, couldn't get into the camp inside the park the first night as it was full, I guess because it was a Saturday night, so had to stay just outside the park but booked for the following night
They have a really good shuttle bus system there which is free & have 3 different routes, again, it is hop on-hop off at any of the stops. There is only a 8-10 minute wait between buses at any of the stops so you usually have time to have a bit of a look, take some photos & then the next bus is there or you can wait for the one after. We did the eastern end today & will do the western end tomorrow. It is so much easier than parking the bus all the time & some of the areas private vehicles aren't allowed.
The Grand Canyon is truly amazing, you see photos of it but it's totally different when you actually see it, it'so huge.
Saw our first wildlife today, an elk & some deer & some squirrels.
