7 Natural Wonders: Grand Canyon Day Trip

7 Natural Wonders: Grand Canyon Day Trip

“Hey you want to go to the Grand Canyon tomorrow?”. This was a question asked as my coworker Britt and I continued on our ordinary day at work. A spontaneous day trip to one of the 7 natural wonders of the world? I think yes. How did I go almost six years living in Arizona and NOT see the Grand Canyon? Sure, i’ve flown over it a few times and I think one time I even saw it from a far, but those didn’t count. It was time, and I was way overdue. We put the car in drive at 6:00 AM and headed out for our grand adventure.

How to get there

The trip is actually a relatively simple thing to do if you’re looking for a full day excursion. It only takes 3.5 hours from Phoenix and it is also a relatively easy drive. From Phoenix you simply head on the 17 North like you are going to Flagstaff. You make a few turns after that and boom- You have arrived. Okay, it’s not that simple, but it was one of the easier drives I have made in my life.

What to do

Explore! Once you get in through the National Parks gates (30 dollar admission fee good for 7 days.) The opportunities are endless. Oh, and we entered on the south side and were technically on the south rim of the Grand Canyon. We leisurely walked the edge for a while, people watched and met amazing strangers along the way. The park goes on for miles and so does its views and it is nothing short of amazing.

We opted to stay near Mather Point and marvel at the views. If you are really adventurous there are plenty of hiking spots to keep you busy. Although we didn’t make the sunrise or the sunset, it was still a worthwhile trip. I highly recommend seeing the Grand Canyon in person. It truly is grand.
