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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
