When Ashley and I were planning our trip to Nevada, we knew we would have to hop the border to Arizona and see the Grand Canyon. I had been before when I was smaller, but Ashley had never seen the marvelous hole in the ground. We rented a car and made the insanely fun 2 and a half hour drive to the west rim of the canyon. We wanted to hike it, but you can only do that from the North or South rim, and we didn't want to make a longer drive and spend the night.
We still got to see stunning, panoramic views of the canyon and "hike" to the top of a huge rock. In my opinion, if you ever find yourself in Las Vegas, you have to make the trip. It's one of the most stunning thing's you'll ever see in nature, and it is truly breathtaking!
