Go West 5

Coming down from the Rockies we stayed in Moab, UT.  Pretty red rock mesas.  We did not tangle with the Moabites (see Judges 3.29) as we left for the Grand Canyon.  We arrived there about 2 pm and headed for the South rim.  It has to be an amazing experience to see this for the first time as we did.  I image some cow poke riding along and coming to the edge for the first time.  What a sight!  That said, once you have been there for 10 or 15 minutes, you get the basic idea.  Not to disparage those who dedicate their lives to exploring and and understanding the Canyon. It is a wonder.  Pictures do not do it justice.  There was a lot of walking for Monica from parking lots to shuttle buses and then to the view sites so we only stayed for a couple of hours.  Our next stop was Flagstaff, AZ where a new adventure awaited us.
