Tourist Day

Tourist Central = The Village (click on map to enlarge)

This was our obligatory Tourist Day. It wasn’t intended that way. Originally we had plans to catch the sunrise at Moran Point which meant getting up at about 3:30 am. Scratch that. Next, we were going to watch the sunrise somewhere near The Village. Nope. Finally, it devolved into getting up late and playing tourists. Better, much better.

At about 8 am we caught the Blue Line bus to the end of the line — the Bright Angel Trailhead. From there we walked the Rim Trail through “The Village”. We had breakfast at Bright Angel Lodge, visited El Tovar Hotel (where we stayed 25 years ago), had ice cream, bought stuff, and snapped photos along the way.

Here are the photos . . .
