The Astounding Grand Canyon

We were picked up from our Hotel really early for our Tour to Grand Canyon. It was a 3 hour drive, passing through Joshua trees, Mojave Desert, Hoover Dam and beautiful Lake Mead.  We also saw a village with the market on our way.

Our Tour also included a ride to West Rim, visit to Hualapai Ranch, Eagle point but the highlight was a walk on a glass bottomed Grand Canyon skywalk.

On the border of Nevada and Arizona. on the Colorado River is a dam called Hoover Dam. This dam named after President Herbert Hoover was built to control floods, provide water for irrigation and also produce power. Ever since it was built it has become a major tourist attraction, with nearly one million people visiting it each year.

We returned to Las Vegas late in the evening after spending an entire day at the magnificent Grand Canyon.
