The Grand Canyon, South Rim.

While in Las Vegas we knew that we needed to go and visit the Grand Canyon.Its a once in a lifetime opportunity. There is many tours available. We choose one that takes 4 hours to get there and it gives you two hours to walk and visit the Canyon by the Rim Trail or you can visit and take a shuttle to bring you at different point depending of your ability to walk. Don't do it in the summer, its way to hot but mind you, no humidity. If you want to book it while in Vegas, go at the CVS pharmacy at 3758 South Las Vegas Boulevard, there is a boot outside and and someone will offer you a booking, you go inside and ask for Ronnie Star, he knows his business, very honest and efficient, he will not waste your time, very helpful and friendly. Prices are great. We booked the Grand Canyon and made us an offer for the Hoover Dam, everything he said was accurate @ 100%, highly recommended.
During the Canyon tour, don't forget to bring at least a liter of water and a hat and also a wind breaker, sometimes its windy and it is always 10c cooler around the Canyon than in Vegas.

I will not make comments on the pictures, its all the Grand Canyon. If anyone is interested in having a larger one, email me. One thing I can state is that the awesomeness is not represented in the pictures, you have to be there. At the first point, the first picture that is, my jaw dropped. Its just amazing. Many of the pictures are with the 10-17 Fish-eye lens and when its states 10mm it means 180 degree of view, that's very very wide, again its not easy to represent that on a screen. Meanwhile, good viewing.
