The Grand Canyon and surrounding attractions

The Grand Canyon to me is the 7th wonder of the world and a place I always wanted to see since childhood.The Sky walk is glass based and stretches 80 foot into the Canyon and we could see the bottom of the Canyon 4000 feet below !! Before entering into the Skywalk we were entertained by the local Hualapai tribe (pronounced Walahigh) who did a very colourful Indian dance ( I wonder why they were called redskins? coz they aren’t !!) The scenery is incredible and I could have sat there for hours !! One particular scenic view was a rock formation carved into the Canyon cliff side and looked very much like a giant Eagle!! We were shunted around different vantage points to enjoy the beautiful landscapes.During the trip we opted to go to a Cowboy ranch for a typical? cowboy lunch and afterwards had leisure time enjoying various activities including Tomahawk throwing,using a Hangmans noose,getting locked up in jail,inspecting all the animals that are around the ranch.A very enjoyable day and well worth the trip fare !! This day will stay with me for a long time to come Annie also enjoyed herself too (had to put that in 9n case she thinks Ive forgotten her !!) The Hoover Dam on the way is very spectacular and its easy to see why Las Vegas is drying up !! Note the WHITE line around the river that isa 100 FOOT drop in water levels !!
