Grand Canyon For Lunch
Grand Canyon for lunch? Sure! Let's run up there.
Canyon for lunch is an easy and pleasant drive from Flagstaff. When you get
there you'll be reminded that people come to Arizona and the canyon from all over the
world. And for us its just up the road.
Recently my wife and I made the trip again. We drove up by way of Highway
180. We skirted the San Francisco peaks and enjoyed the colors of the oaks and
aspens changing into fall hues. Three minutes up one of the little side
roads may lead you to the scene pictured below.

Going to the Grand
Canyon for lunch is always an invigorating experience, and I come away with a renewed
appreciation for this natural treasure in our backyard.
mingling and talking with other Grand Canyon visitors, I find that almost all
of them are visiting from other countries... or at least other states. Some
stay several days in the hotels and inns and tour the park and canyon by mule, bicycle,
helicopter, and on foot.
canyon and its many moods and seasons are worthy of many photos, but I
think we take as many photos of the visitors enjoying the canyon views as we
take of the canyon itself.
Many of the other visitors that we talk with request that we use their camera
to make photos of them posing with the canyon in the background. I
suppose it's certainly proof they were there.
Canyon for lunch is what we call it, but strolling the walkways along
the rim and enjoying the views and visitors also make for a pleasant day.
We usually visit
the Bright Angel to actually have lunch. There are other pleasant places in
Grand Canyon Village to eat, but we enjoy the old hotels, both the El Tovar
(pictured below) and Bright Angel.
We've also been known to extend our visit overnight.
Sometimes you can get lucky and find a vacancy if you don't have reservations.
A Google search using
the keyword phrase grand canyon will show you many information resources
