Grand Canyon, AZ

Jan’s 1st Selfie


We arrived at Trailer Village at the Grand Canyon last Saturday afternoon. It’s a full hookup campground and we’re here for two weeks.

This is our third visit here. The first time we essentially drove by in 1992 during our Route 66 tour. In 1994, we stayed at El Tovar for several days and absolutely loved it.

On our way up this time up we had concerns about the cold and the possibility of getting snow. We saw patches of it on the sides of Interstate 40 outside of Flagstaff.

Also, the Grand Canyon is at 6,800 feet. Elevation plays a huge role in weather as the further up you go, the colder it gets.

On our first day here we walked to the canyon’s rim and logged about 3 miles. There is plenty to do here . . . more later . . .
