9.25 on the rim

Our final view of the grand canyon was as we left. At 9.25 we went to one of the high viewing areas to take the last photos of it. (like we probably didn't have enough already lol).
Papers are Papermania Retro (for a change), buttons are B G, flowers Prima, G/A is K & Co and letters are Papermania.

Always Changing

Sunrise is very like sunset. The main difference is that is starts of very cold and warms up. Lol. Colourwise it is as sunset but in reverse.
Papers K & Co Happy Trails. Alphabet is Papermania. Journalling square is Creative Imaginations.


As our hotel was just 10 mins from the edge of the south rim of the canyon it was easy for us ot make a date with watching the sun set. Watching the sun set over the canyon is very colourful. The rocks change constantly as it gets darker.

Bright Angel Trail

There are trails all through the canyon. I actually wsn't keen walking down this trail into the canyon because so much of it means walking on a norrow trail with a huge drop. I don't do height well so felt quite un-nerved by this, as did the 2 people with me. This trail was close to our hotel.

The Grand Canyon

I went through a whole roll of film and a half to take shots of the canyon whilst flying over it. that's a good 50 photos. It was hard to whitle them down but I managed to get 8 shots on this one LO by making a couple of mini albums.
The whole flight was an amazing experience and I would do it again.
Grand Adhesions are K & Co Happy Trails - Grand Canyon.

Fly the canyon

It was the trip of the holiday. Flying over the Grand Canyon. The joke of this photo is that I took a photo of any old plane and ws going to tell people that I went on that plane. In reality I DID go on that plane. Lol.

Oak Creek Canyon

On the way to The Grabd Canyon we passed through Oak Creek Canyon. It is very much used as filmland especially for westerns. Up hair pin bends you get some amazing views. Sadly they were into the sunlight for me so aren't as clear as they could be.
NO paper this time just C/S. !!! Ribbon and ric rack from Papermania. Chatterbox sticky alphabet letters. Embellishment from Jolees.

Bus Trip U S A

So on with the 1989 USA holiday LOs. (and you thought I'd finished or forgotten lol.)
We made a stop out in the desert so we could see seguaro cactus up close. It also gave us an opportunity to capture the tour director and bus driver on camera.
Papers as usual K & Co Happy Trails with a G A from the collection too. Chipboard letters are thickers.
