Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Grand Canyon National Park, a World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, is a top family travel destination and a must see, at least once.

We started our Grand Canyon adventure last Spring on Route 66. The kids were excited to drive on this historic route which was introduced to their generation in the Disney/Pixar movie “Cars”.

It gets pretty cold that time of year at the Grand Canyon. We weren’t equipped with warm enough clothes so we had to buy some cheap hats and gloves at a dollar store.

(My cheap hat was the “Smurfiest” of all of the hats.)

I just love Léah’s cheeks in this picture.

The canyon offers so many lookouts with views that cannot be matched.

Now we need to schedule the time to visit the other six natural wonders of the world!
