I woke up early to go watch sunset at Mather Point, Grand Canyon.
The host of this event is obviously Elk Deer (sorry, I introduced this type of this deer Elf, but Elk) because she lives here.
The tip is called Mather Point.
I managed to squeeze to get a front row at Mather Point.
Sun is about to rise.
iPhone camera is not suitable to take sunrise; but I’m happy with these photos.
Grand Canyon grows softly under sunshine of sunrise.
It was so beautiful.
It was worth waking up at 3:40 am to depart hotel at 4:40 am to catch sunrise at 5:15 am.
Then returned hotel for breakfast.
This is my first time to see a yogurt vending machine.
After breakfast, went for Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour (operated by Papillon).
This is my first helicopter ride.
The ride was smooth and the scenery is gorgeous.
I would highly recommend the helicopter tour to feel how GREAT this Canyon is.
Colorado River. This river eroded the mountains to make the canyon.
For lunch, I had a typical American sandwich, B.L.T. Sandwich (beacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich) with strawberry ice cream.
After lunch, before departing for Antelope, watched Indian Hoop Dance.
He danced (or jumped) through using many hoops.
I wore a surgical mask before getting on a truck because the road is very sandy.
We cannot avoid sands because these sands make beautiful sceneries in a cave.
Our guide is Native American so he knew the cave very well, pointing out explaining what these resembles.
This is a closer look of bear.
At the end of the tour, he played a pipe for us, sounding so healing.
Thank you, Slow Horse!
After a great adventure, enjoyed salmon dinner listening to Country Music live band.
I’m going to stay two nights at Lake Powell Resort & Marinas.
This hotel is the only resort built next to Powell Dam.
It’s nice to have a lake (even artificial) view in the desert.
There is a coffee maker and Starbucks capsuls are available. Yeah!
I made a cocoa for my bed time drink.
