After Palm Springs, and stopping back through Joshua Tree where we stayed with Ben’s sponsor family from the Academy!!, we finally made our way eastward towards Antelope Canyon! Thankfully, the ole Grand Canyon was on the way, providing the perfect lunch spot. I’ve seen hundreds of images of the Grand Canyon but you truly don’t understand just how GRAND it is until you are standing there looking at it yourself. Even then, it is still hard to grasp the vastness. It looks like a painting with thousands of layers and is breathtaking. I mean truly, truly a work of art by God. This whole trip had several moments of me just standing in awe of creation.
^Me just soaking in all the goodness. LIKE ARE YOU KIDDING ME^^
After leaving the canyon we carried on through the evening to get to Antelope Canyon! On the way, we saw the most STUNNING sunset of our lives. Then, to top it off there was a full moon shining over the red clay mountains and I about lost my cool. So much so that I made Katie immediately pull over. I’ve had this weird thing of always wanting to see this and when it happened I teared up. It was beyond incredible and pictures don’t do it justice at all!
The Grand Canyon is 100% worth the hype and even then some.
