Started the day remembering the victims of 9/11 & feeling a bit guilty. But I said a few more prayers and we left for our Grand Canyon Tour. We started at the East rim which gives the best view of the Colorado River and worked our way around to the South Rim. Breathtaking! One mile deep, 10 miles wide and 277 miles long! It was hazy due to a nearby fire sending smoke into canyon, but still gorgeous! I was quite surprised at the lack of railings! In fact, very few places have a railing and the railings that do exist are old and decrepit! There are walls in a few spots but they’re not very high. Saw MANY people trying to take crazy pictures—dangling their feet over the edge, standing right on the edge leaning over! Our guide told us the park has stopped putting up railings because so many people jump over the rail! I thought we got some pretty good pictures without endangering our lives! Tony was disappointed we weren’t going to the bottom of the canyon. Told him we could come back next year and take the 8 hour burro ride to the bottom, spend the night in the canyon and do the 8 hour burro ride back!
