Ahh yes, The Grand Canyon. While we knew it was January, neither of us were prepared for just how cold northern Arizona would be. I mean, it looked a lot like Alberta. Our plan was to stay on the North Rim the first night but everything was closed, so we made our way to the South Rim and while there were no rangers or attendants at the gate, it wasn’t closed so we pulled in, found a parking lot and crawled into the back of Patchwork for a movie and good night’s sleep. In the morning we worked our way along the scenic views of the South Rim. Matt got some really beautiful photos but all in all it wasn’t quite all we had built it up to be. We were a bit disappointed that we couldn’t properly camp as it was just too cold. It was far too cold to even make our morning coffee. Hoping we can make it back in Spring or Summer when we can really enjoy being outside.
