Grand Canyon

I took Jess to the Grand Canyon when she was 6. All that she can remember was "it was really hot and it was not so fun to look at so many rocks." HOWEVER, Jess' opinion changed when I told her the plan to take Mads to visit the Grand Canyon. In fact, when I told her the details of that plan which included taking a helicopter to the Canyon's floor, her response was, "That is bad ass!"

Jeg tog Jess til The Grand Canyon da hun var 6. Alle at hun kan huske er "det var meget varmt og det var ikke så sjovt at se så mange sten." DOG Jess' mening skiftede da jeg fortalte hende om vores plan for at besøge Grand Canyon med Mads. Faktisk, da jeg fortalte Jess at vi skulle tage en helikopter til gulvet af Grand Canyon, var hendes svar "That's bad ass!"




We flew over the Hoover Dam....
Vi fløj over Hoover Dam.....


..over Lake Mead, the largest man-made lake....
.....over Lake Mead, den største "mand-lavet" sø...
down to the floor of the Grand Canyon.
ned til gulvet af Grand Canyon.

We then sailed down the Colorado River so we actually saw the
Grand Canyon from every possible perspective.
IT WAS AWESOME.

Vi sejlede ned den Colorado River så vi så The Grand Canyon fra hvert perspektiv....
DET VAR FORBLØFFENDE.

If you ever get the opportunity to take a helicopter tour to the Grand Canyon,
I have just two words for you..... TAKE IT!

Hvis man har chancen for at tage en helikopter-tur til Grand Canyon,
har jeg 2 ord for dig... TAG DET!

Wow - what an amazing experience! I once took a helicopter ride around the Statue of Liberty, but this is way way better!
