Have you ever visited the Grand Canyon?? Although I’m no longer sticking to my bucket list, it’s been on my list for quite a while! I’ve been to Vegas over 20 times but never had anyone to go to the Grand Canyon with! After my mom passed in January I said I was going to do any and everything I wanted to do even if I had to do it alone! Hell, she packed up & moved to Las Vegas alone & never looked back! I survived Paris alone! I know now there is nothing I can’t do! In 2016 my mom took my daughter & I to the Hoover Dam and we were in awe… it’s amazing the things that man can build. But seeing the Grand Canyon is a different amazing. Amazing like wow, God made this! The Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile. It’s beautiful! Absolutely stunning! It literally makes your jaw drop! It’s kind of like the feeling you get when you see your child playing in the yard in 75 degree weather, you know that pure bliss! Yasss!!! Makes you say, “thank you!”
I decided on the helicopter tour tour because I was going alone and didn’t want to take an approximately 14 hour hotel to hotel trip bus ride to the Canyon! That would allow me too much time to think & be worrying about all the things I needed to complete while here in Vegas! The shuttle ride was maybe 35 minuets from my hotel. The helicopter ride at 140 mph was maybe 20 minuets to the Canyon & on the way we viewed The Hoover Dam and Lake Meade.

Once at the Grand Canyon we landed, walked around, took pictures and had a cute little lunch & champagne toast!
On the way back everyone was quiet. Sitting in amazement! I’m sure alone with their own personal thoughts! I thought about my mom and all the places she’s been and all the things she had done in her short 59 years of life. I also thought about how I wish my hubby and daughter were there to experience this with me! After a peaceful cry, I began to google things I wanted to do on my next trip! That made me smile!
I don’t know who will read this but, just remember to pray for your friends/family! Although we are smiling and trying to enjoy life on the outside, a lot of us are struggling with something on the inside!
