I have always wanted to see the Grand Canyon. Hubby and I went south to Arizona the first week of May.
Makenzie stayed with us the week after Easter. We took her home to Colorado on Friday and flew out of Denver on Saturday morning. We stayed north of Phoenix, about 30 minutes away, near Peoria. We stopped at the grocery store and shopped on the way to the resort. By the time we were registered and unpacked, we only had time to sit outside and enjoy the sunset.
Temps were cooler Sunday through Tuesday, but by Wed, temps were to be in the mid 90’s. We were so ready to feel the sun after our cooler weather during April in Nebraska.
After breakfast on Sunday morning, we drove in to Phoenix, to see downtown and visit the Wells Fargo museum. Wouldn’t you know it, but the museum was closed on Sundays.
I thought the sun burst above the front doors was very interesting!
We drove past a few of the large churches in town.
I love the detail of the windows.
We took another route back to see the area, and relaxed at the pool area.
Monday morning, we enjoyed a light breakfast while listening to local businesses share information about area tours, etc. We had decided to do a tour to the Grand Canyon on Tuesday, rather that drive there ourselves. We were 3 ½ hours south of the canyon, and a tour driver would know exactly the best places to view the canyon and we wouldn’t have to worry about parking.
