Got up early and had a nice shower (nice facilities at these campsites !).  Had breakfast and packed everything up.  Set off for the Grand Canyon (200 miles).

Arrived at 3pm.  The rest of the group went for a hike down one of the trails and Jodie, Ricky and I walked along the Rim (south).  Absolutely amazing place, the pictures don't do it justice of course.

Went back to camp and then set off for Tusayan to watch an Imax (3D) movie of the Grand Canyon (don't recommend it, wasn't very good !) and then for pizza.

Got back to camp (really cold out) and sat around the camp fire chatting and eating Smores (never heard of it before - its on wikipedia though ! - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S'more)

At 1am a loud siren went off waking us all up, no idea what it was although think it was a fire siren.  It stopped and no-one seemed to be doing anything so went back to sleep !

Got up early, had breakfast and packed everything up.  Seven of us went on the helicopter flight and luckily it held seven (+ the pilot of course !) so we were all together.  It was really good but very short for the price !
