For my father’s 60th birthday we all met in Las Vegas for a wonderful three day trip full of great food, amazing company, shopping, a lot of craps playing (for me), and a helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon. I’ve visited the North and South Rim of the Grand Canyon before with my dad on a road trip we did in Utah and Arizona, but I’d never been to the West Rim before. We had a great time flying in a helicopter from Las Vegas over the Hoover Dam and landing at the base of the Canyon for a pontoon ride down the Colorado River. After the boat ride we went to the top of the Canyon to do the glass skywalk, which I wasn’t allowed to bring my camera on, but I got some photos of the beautiful view at the canyon edge next to the skywalk. My sister and her boyfriend- now fiance- got engaged while we were in Antarctica (photos and story coming soon) and we had fun doing a mini e-session amongst the beautiful backdrop of the Grand Canyon! My parents even got in the spirit of photo taking and let me take one of them together on the boat.
