Luckily we have plenty of warm clothes, so after breakfast we made the quick drive to the canyon. The roads were only mildly snowy/icy, so we had no trouble getting up there. I wasn't sure what to expect with it being so cold outside, but it turns out that the paved rim walk along the edge of the canyon had been cleared of snow and was a really easy walk. We parked at the visitors center and walked about 3 miles stopping here and there to take pictures. At the village area there are several lodges and restaurants.
The Grand Canyon was better than I had expected. It's sheer volume and immense size would make anyone feel small, but when you read about the billions of years that passed in its formation you realize that each of our lives are only the blink of an eye relative to the earth's history.
In the morning we pack up and head for Vegas. Stay warm wherever you are. We'll try to do the same here.
