Grand Canyon Trip Day Two...

Day two was a travel day for us.  We started off with breakfast at our hotel and then loaded up in the van to head to the South Rim of the Canyon.

I love getting to see cacti in Arizona!  This is always my favorite part of the dessert.

We had a great lunch in Sedona at L’Auberge.  The restaurant overlooks a creek.  It is such a pretty site for lunch.

We made it to the South Rim!  You can see the trail that we will be hiking the following morning. 
So happy to finally see the Grand Canyon!

Zoomed in on the trail. Are we really going all the way down there???

Our hotel on the South Rim was a historic hotel called El Tovar.  This is the hotel that is shown on National Lampoon's Vacation when the Grand Canyon scene is shot.  I made Ken watch the movie before we left and he was so not impressed with me building up the Grand Canyon scene.  I liked the entire 90 seconds, so that is all that matters.  :)
