My Visit To The Grand Canyon, Arizona

I WAS ASKED ME WHETHER I VISITED GRAND CANYON when I was in Las Vegas... yes, I definitely did this time round.  During our one week stay in Las Vegas, we went for a day trip all the way to Grand Canyon, it was a four hours drive... no joke about that.   We started off early and passed through beautiful greens along the way....
Endless pine trees on both sides of the roads leading up to Grand Canyon...
After four hours drive, we reached the entrance of Grand Canyon Nation Park....
It was very hot..... or should I say... supremely Hot! 
We had to put on lots of suntan lotion and wear our hats.... 
One can never miss this circle on the way in and out...  
We walked up to the Grand Canyon....
And we stood there.... mesmerized... 
It was indeed awesome!
Too bad my pictures did not do much credit to the beauty....
The Grand Canyon is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in the state of Arizona....
It is so natural....
And we stood there for some time...
.........admiring the vasts of the mountain natural beauty that lies ahead of us...
The Grand Canyon is 446 km long, 
up to 29 km wide and attains a depth of over 6,093 feet or 1,857 meters...
Even though it was a weekday, tourists were aplenty...
Even the squirrel had no fear for humans.... 
I just keep taking pictures after pictures... 
And realized that I had the flash light on only when I reached home!
That is why my pictures turned out too bright... sigh...
Anyway.... Grand Canyon is like this.. now I know....  
So deep down... looks like endless from where I stood...
And my legs turned jelly... hahahaa... 
The canyon is the result of erosion which creates one of the most complete geologic columns on the planet.... *info from wikipedia* 
A quick picture before I stepped back.... looking down takes guts! hahahaha..
On the way back, we stopped by to say Hi to the Tusayan Ranger Station...
And then it was a four hours drive back to Las Vegas... 
Thanks to my Big Boss who drove tirelessly while we ladies slept and slept... 
I blame it on the Heat!   :)

  11. Let me tell you that your flash lights did not affect the brightness of the canyons in your photos.
    This magnificent place is so huge and bright with lots of sun rays with with all round reflections that only the real professionals would know how to use filter lenses or those with sophisticated auto DSLR to capture them beautifully. My friends and I also captured disaster photos!! Muahahahaha

    I would vote this Grand Canyon as the most beautiful place in USA. After that visit, I remembered saying that if I had died the next day, it was worth the visit to the canyons.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
