I've seen pictures of the Grand Canyon, who hasn't? But, never in my wildest imagination would I have expected what I saw in person. Z and I took the Grand Canyon Railway from Williams Arizona to the Grand Canyon National Park. It is on the south rim. This was in March 2018. We had not planned to stay on the rim overnight; but, Z was able to find a room at the last minute at the Thunderbird Hotel. Somewhat expensive for our budget but we decided it would be a birthday present for her. Staying overnight allowed us plenty of time to experience this gem of a national park.
