September 6 2011; Grand Canyon National Park

Elaine and I arrived late at night and set up camp in Trailer Village.

I was tired from the drive the day before and wanted to sleep in.
Elaine woke me up before sunrise and we drove to a beautiful sunrise on the Grand Canyon at Yavapai Point. It was worth it.

Walking up to the edge for the first time is breathtaking! I had never seen it before.

 Before exploring we had a great breakfast at the El Tovar Lodge.

Our charging problems continued. The power to the fridge was running low. Even though we were plugged into shore power, we couldn't get 12 volt output and the battery wasn't charging.

Thats the Colorado River way down there.

She's not a hermit but Elaine found a good place to rest.

These little beggers were all over. They would try to steal food out of backpacks.

Shuttle busses in the park ran about every 15 minutes and were very convenient. You can travel to different points on the south rim easily.

After a day of sightseeing we enjoyed a wonderful sunset.
