Andrew and I are big fans of a good road trip, and in 2012, we took one of our favorite trips ever–an eight-day drive around the Grand Canyon starting in Las Vegas. We made stops at the Hoover Dam, along Route 66, Sedona, the south rim of the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, St. George and back to Vegas. We saw some of the most beautiful natural landmarks in the country and loved Arizona so much we went back in 2015 to see a whole different set of beautiful sites.
Here are a few pictures from that trip captioned with the location where they were taken. My only regret is that we were so close to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park and didn’t stop to see them. We were tired after our morning at Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon and were ready to get back to Las Vegas, but those two are still on my list. We stopped only briefly in St. George, but it seemed like a really nice town and we occasionally still joke about moving there.
