Words cannot describe the beauty of this place

Today began with a very early start. We had set the alarm to wake us up in time to see the sunrise while sitting on the edge of the Grand Canyon. A few of us huddled on the cliffs and waited for the sun to show itself and expose the magnificent colours little by little until the Canyon was a blaze of red with beautiful blue skies overhead. It was a wonderful, magical moment I will never forget.
There was a helicopter ride booked to take us over the Canyon today for anyone on the tour who was interested. I was very keen to fly over the Grand Canyon and see it from a different perspective. It was a fantastic trip. We flew over acres of green trees listening to music through a headset and as we neared the edge of the Canyon the music became more dramatic until the moment we reached the edge when the music exploded in our ears in a thundering roar, and the sound and the sight assaulted our senses all at the same time.
Back at our accommodation, we went for a hike along the rim of the Canyon for a few hours, taking in more magnificent vistas. You have to see this wonderful place to believe it and any photo you take will not do this beautiful place justice.
After our hike, we all met back up to watch the sunset before heading off to dinner and then spend the evening among new friends playing pool in the bar.
