Grand Canyon - Day 2

Day 2 was another beautiful day.  Turns out this weekend was Free National Park Day - what a bonus!

Horseshoe Bend outside of Page.  It was around 3PM - basically the worst light.  We'll come back in better light, we promise!

Here's Jennifer saying goodbye on Day 2 - and designed to freak our parents out!  It's a 1,000 foot drop straight down.....

We lived to post the blog, and to head out to hike "The Wave" tomorrow!

We are in the American Southwest for 10 days.  We flew into Phoenix from Seattle, and drove up to the Grand Canyon.  Here are some pics from our first evening and first full day:
