Tuesday Travels – Grand Canyon

Tuesday Travels are much like Weekend Wandering – except we go much further from home! Tuesday Travels will be a series on places that we’ve gone on weekend trips, or sometimes a week or maybe two!  I love both series and they are equally important when trying to fill up your empty nest time!

Mark & I love to travel – have I mentioned that before? Well, since both of us were single parents for many years, traveling a lot, or without kids, was practically unheard of! We were both in agreement that travel was at the top of our “to do when the kids are gone” list!

I think my favorite trip – so far – was to Las Vegas. We stayed about a week, but we did so many nearby things it felt like we were there for a month! It was the first time there for both of us, so we had so many things that we ‘had’ to do!

This was the most exciting! Seeing the Grand Canyon from a small plane! YES – it was exactly THAT thrilling!!

There’s Mark with the little video cam. I was on the opposite side of the plane with the camera. Yep, this plane was only 2 seats wide!  This was awesome, as we both got to capture different scenes!

We got to see a whole lot more than going to the actual park! And the plane flew very low at times!

The views were incredible! Absolutely amazing the vastness of this place! It was HUGE!

Before heading back to land, we flew over Lake Mead & Hoover Dam. We actually went there to visit & tour on another day. Stay tuned to see that on another episode of Tuesday Travels!

If you go to the Grand Canyon, I highly recommend taking a small plane tour. You will not regret it!
