We left Page Arizona for the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Ten-X, a US Forest Service Campground just outside the south rim of the Canyon. This was the perfect jumping off point for exploring the Canyon.
The Canyon provides innumerable opportunities to hike, bike and explore the natural beauty of this special place.
Perhaps the most spectacular event of our Grand Canyon adventure was a chance to fly over the south and northwest rims by helicopter…Karen’s first helicopter flight.
A special “must visit” on the south rim is the 1905 El Tovar Hotel. This was one of the special hotels owned and operated by the Fred Harvey Companies. The beauty by today’s standards makes it all the more amazing to consider given the time it was constructed and the logistics needed to operate it.

There’s much more to do and see than we could fit in….and this was our second trip to the South Rim!
