Ed and I spent the day walking around the Grand Canyon today. We had planned to meet Ed's brother, Tom, and his wife Tina, but they got stuck in Las Vegas learning how to drive their expensive new car that has amazing assist features to help Tom keep driving for the next 10 years, despite his disability. Instead of a nice visit with Tom and Tina, we had a little honeymoon trip! The Canyon is spectacular, and the weather was perfect! We saw lots of wildlife.
As you might notice from my expression, this bull elk came a little too close for comfort. The ranger told us to not move, and everything would "probably" be just fine! His whole harem was with him, so they passed by us first on the sidewalk right behind our bench! We also saw lots of turkey vultures and SQUIRRELS! We learned all about the successful introduction of California Condors in the park, and we're hoping to see one before we leave.
At the end of the day we sat on a park bench and watched the sun set over the Canyon. It was a perfect day!
