Locations: Las Vegas, Lake Med (NV), Hoover Dam (NV), Flagstaff (AZ)
We thought of extending our Calgary summer one more week. A trip to warm Arizona and see the Grand Canyon would be a good idea, we thought.
We started our trip from Las Vegas and then a sidetrip to Lake Med and Hoover Dam. We've visited this area already in the past but thought of getting into the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge (O'Callaghan-Tillman Memorial Bridge) instead to get a different perspective. At 840 feet above the Colorado river, the bridge gives an astonishing view of the dam below.
As we were getting close to the Grand Canyon area, it started snowing and by the time we got to our hotel, the snow was as thick as a big dump in Canada! What a surprise!
The following day we drove towards the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and found out it has not snowed out yet. The first must-to-see we visited was the Antelope Canyon near Page, about 2 hours drive from Flagstaff.
