One of the perks of traveling to Arizona for work so often for a couple years? Grand Canyon weekend trips!
I would drive from Phoenix to Flagstaff, and from Flagstaff to the South Rim of Grand Canyon….
There’s easy walking and hiking along the rim, with the expansive views of the Canyon around you. I like to go a little later around noon to miss the morning rush and watch the sunset.
As the sun goes down, the canyon sinks into shadows a piece at at time over the ridges….
It’s the kind of place I keep wanting to visit again and again.
The National Park Service maintains a great resource for planning your Grand Canyon weekend here: Plan Your Visit.
