We left the Monday after the wedding and had reservations (kindly made and paid for by David for our Wedding Anniversary) to go on the Hulapai Indian Shelf overlooking the Grand Canyon West. I had expected to be quite nervous because I do not like heights. However, it was almost an anti-climax as there was no feeling of fear or anxiety.
On the way to the shelf we passed these cows with very large upward curving horns. However, standing apart from them looking very sad was another cow with horns that curved downwards. Perhaps that is why he looked so forlorn.
The next day we drove to Bryce Canyon. What a wonder that is to behold. There is nothing else like it on the planet. The columns or hoodoos are created by ice thawing and freezing and torrential rain. We saw it with David and my parents about 25 years ago, Gary with his parents about 7 years ago and I am still filled with awe when I overlook the canyon.
We did manage to take some nice wildlife photos during our hike/hobble.
So, to summarise our trip to Las Vegas. The wedding, baptism and family were great. So were the canyons. However, Gary being ill (now David has whatever Gary had, poor baby. I wonder if he is expecting any sympathy from ME!!!!), the fall at Bryce and the loss of my lens and emerald kinda spoiled it. However, we are still here to enjoy whatever follows.
