For Labor day, we went to the Grand Canyon which is only about and hour from Flagstaff. I had never been before so it was really exciting for me. We were doing a large loop to the canyon so the drive there was just gorgeous. The drive back was through Navajo nation so.... not pretty. The canyon was just.... huge! There is no other way to describe it. It looked like it was a painting or a huge photograph or something. I couldn't believe something that big existed. We enjoyed Mather point which is one of the most famous look out areas. Tons of tourists. Then we went to the Grand Canyon general store which is a huge deli/grocery/souvenir/camping store. We had a very good lunch there and walked around the store. Then we started on the drive home along the rim.
