Utah Road Trip, Part Five: Grand Canyon and Meteor Crater

We arrived at Grand Canyon in the evening.  We drove through the park to get to our hotel, so we stopped to have a quick look.  Poor Chess wasn't feeling very good - she had an earache, but thankfully felt better the next morning.

Grandma got us a discount at a nice hotel right by the Grand Canyon.

We saw some elk eating the grass on the hotel lawn!

Seeing the canyon the next morning.

Next, we drove a couple of hours to the Meteor Crater.

It was extremely windy!

This is the best preserved meteor crater on earth.

This is a view from the building, with a cut-out brick window.  Looks like a painting, doesn't it?
