The Grand Canyon... or as the kids say, The Big Hole in the Ground


Well I can safely say I have not seen something so awe inspiring as The Grand Canyon. The day was overcast and rained a bit so visibility was not perfect, however, it did not take away from the awesome feeling you get as you aproach the edge and look out forever over the canyon.
Michele and the boys strike a pose... see that familiar grip Michele uses? Notice it from atop Whiteface Mountain in the Lake Placid region last year? YEs, it is her patented "overhand baby-holder grip" (U.S. pat # 9033476991)...she puts it into use whenever she is with the kids and within 50 feet of a deadly drop.
Lucky me.. I caught a condor on my first photo at the canyon. These things are huge. Apparently they have reproduced in the wild and so it looks as if they have a chance to come back.
We took The Grand Canyon Railroad up to the Canyon from Williams, AZ. This is a cool Route 66 town that has an old railway with a great scenic trip up to the canyon. Here, Wild Bill is sawin' on a fiddle with Barry(the railroad provides great entertainment for the 2 hour trip, including Barry, train roberies and a U.S. Marshall, that can shoot you dead with absolute impunity... at least that's what I told the kids).
Here Jeffrey and I cool off in the Bright Angel Lodge before our trip back. It rained and flooded the tracks, so we offloaded onto a bus in the middle of nowhere... once back in Williams we walked over to Ponchos, a good MExican pub/restaurant with music.

Greetings! I was interested to know if setting up a site such your own: http://www.
blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=14785366&postID=115557632402908890 is difficult
to do for unskilled people? I have been hoping to create my own website for a while now but have been turned off
because I've always believed it required tons of work. What do you think? Thank you

A motivating discussion is worth comment. There's no doubt that that you should write more on this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but usually folks don't talk about such topics.
To the next! Best wishes!!

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
Nevertheless think of if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could
undeniably be one of the greatest in its field.
Terrific blog!
