Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon

We are safely home now after a long flight and a bus ride. So lovely to head to bed at 7.30 pm last night after trying to stay awake all day. We did manage to sleep on the plane which was a big help. Now back to catching up the days left of our US adventure. On Thursday, 1 September, we got up early once more and headed towards Flagstaff where we were staying that night. On the way we discovered we were close to the Hoover Dam. It was great to see this marvel in real life.

After we checked in at Flagstaff we then drove to Sedona. It is a gorgeous place and it was just a shame that it was rainy.

 Can you see this Snoopy rock? We ended up having dinner here and then drove back to Flagstaff in the rainy, dark conditions. It wasn't an easy drive!
On Friday, we headed to the Grand Canyon. It was just as amazing, if not more amazing, than we expected. We walked along the rim for quite a while.

We then drove a long way to our hotel near the Bryce Canyon. The drive itself was amazing as we had to travel around the Grand Canyon past lots of amazing scenery.
