Day 4 – Grand Canyon Nationalpark

Life is not measured by the breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away

This day way the one I was looking forward to the most. It was the day I was about to stand in front of the Grand Canyon.

On this day we left Laughlin and on the way to the Grand Canyon Nationalpark we made a stop in Seligman. It is a small place on the historic Route 66. I loved that place as you feel like you have time-travelled back to the old days.

We drew to the airport from where we could start our helicopter tour to the Grand Canyon. It was my first time ever being on a helicopter and exciting enough we were about to fly to one of the world wonders. Arriving at the edge of Grand Canyon I got very emotional. I haven’t seen anything like that ever in my life. Every person will feel in a different way seeing such a wonder. It just made me realize again how amazing the nature is and what it is capable of. In front of the canyon we as humans feel powerless. I was amazed by the beautiful terra cotta colors and the beautiful structures while we were flying over the canyon. I started to think about so many different things and life in general. It was definitely a lifetime experience.

The whole day was about Grand Canyon. We enjoyed the canyon from different viewpoints and we sat on different edges to enjoy the view and take deep breaths.

We stayed at the Yavapai Lodge in Grand Canyon Nationalpark. It got so cold during the night. Two blankets were not enough for us but that made us sleep like a bear and dream about the beautiful Grand Canyon.
