We could see the Grand Canyon for miles far into the horizon. We began the hike in the morning, and were greeted with deep blue skies. As we hiked down into the canyon, it got cooler, but the walking certainly made it seem a lot warmer. Carved by the Colorado River throughout the course of millions of years, the Grand Canyon is layered with a multitude of colors – red, orange, brown, and was sprinkled on some parts with green trees. Amazing views!
