Posted by Judy Burrell.  We recently completed a cross country driving trip, taking our time over 20 days, to "See the USA".   We drove from Southern California to Raleigh, North Carolina.  By far the best and most wonderful part of the trip was seeing the Grand Canyon.  No pictures you see or tales of people telling you about it can ever do it justice.  IIt is absolutely AMAZING.  You just have to see it in person to truly appreciate it.  I took over 200 pictures of the just the Grand Canyon! 

After you enter the National Park in Arizona, you drive along the southern rim and you can stop at numerous lookouts, get out of the car and go look over the edge at the beauty of the Canyon, then go on to the next turnout and take a look there.  Each place is different and magnificent.

We were there for 2 1/2 days arriving at sunset the first day, racing a snow storm the next day and then the last day the sky was blue with puffy white clouds and 4-5 inches of frresh snow in the foreground.  Wow!  My pictures are beautiful.  You couldn't have asked for a better setting for photographs. 

So, if you can, get yourself to Arizona and see the Grand Canyon.  It is truly one of the things EVERY American should see in their life.  It is absolutely MAGNIFICENT!  After all, it is one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.
