Grand Canyon, Helicopters, and Bears Oh My!

This Thanksgiving weekend we went to spend time with Ben's family in Flagstaff AZ. We had such a wonderful time! On Friday, we went on a few great adventures! ( Warning TONS of pictures are about to ensue.)

We woke up early, and left for the Grand Canyon. Once we got there Grandpa had arranged for us to go over the Grand Canyon in a helicopter!!!!! It was an experience I will never forget. The view was breathtaking! Pictures cant do it justice, but we sure did try!
We may have knocked heads once or twice trying to take this picture. 















After lunch, we then drove to Williams Az. Ben's parents took us about a place called Bearizona. Bearizona is a kind of park where you drive through various animals habitats including, you guessed it, BEARS!
Why, yes those are several LARGE black bears eating three feet away from us! 









We made so many wonderful memories that weekend! We also had the opportunity to learn about the history of the Grand Canyon and about the animals that we saw. ( Did you know porcupines climb trees?! I certainly didn't.) I cant believe all the amazing things my eyes beheld!


What adventures have you gone on recently? Any wonderful adventures in the future?

Love Always,
Alix

  1. I've always wanted to do the helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon!! I've never heard of Bearizona, but it looks really neat, with all the animals around. I'll have to make my way up there soon!
