I took half of my 6th day and all of my 7th day from cycling, threw the bike in back of a rented van and drove to the Grand Canyon. I've never seen it before. It's my first time. As everyone says, pictures will never capture it's grander. I walked along the South Rim during sunset. More tourist stuff to do today, like a scenic flight over the Grand Canyon, a 4x4 tour of Antelope Canyon and then a float down Glen Canyon. After all of this, I drive back to Phoenix this evening, stay in a hotel and start cycling in the morning towards New Mexico. Plan is to be in Las Cruces by next Sunday!
