All week long, the forecast for our second day at Grand Canyon was cool and rainy. So we were happy to wake up and see some sunshine. We decided to take the orange shuttle bus to the western viewpoints.
But hey…we saw elk!
After warming up over lunch, we said goodbye to Kelly and Avram, who escaped to the warmer temps in Phoenix. They stayed with my brother, Brad, one more night before their early flight home the next morning.
Carl and I went to the visitors center to watch the free movie on the Canyon. When the skies cleared, we tried the Red line for the Eastern lookout points but saw nothing but white blanketing the Canyon. After returning to the Visitors Center, we walked along the Rim Trail, at moments getting glimpses of the Canyon.
