The views of the south rim are as peaceful as they are dramatic. The canyon is over a mile deep and ten miles across but obviously we only got chance to see a tiny portion. The highlight of our visit was the helicopter ride we took which flew a small distance over the precipice and swooped over the jutted rocks and perilous falls. The pilot narrated that the trees below averaged 200 feet high and this gave an indication of the size and majesty of this wonder of the world.

The journey ended all too soon but remains one of the best experiences of the trip so far. The remainder of the time spent at the park was spent walking along the south rim from our lodge to Yaki Point.  Although we had still only touched upon so tiny a portion of the canyon, the wonder of the views gave a fantastic sense of the hidden beauty and danger below. The Grand Canyon has to be seen to be believed (I simply couldn't write anymore without waffling rubbish).
