Glimpsing the Grand Canyon

In the middle of August, Taylor and I decided to go visit my parents in St. George for a weekend.  On Saturday, the 18th, we went to the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park with my mom and the Kanenwishers!  It was so awesome!  I had never seen the Grand Canyon before.  I loved that place!  It is incredibly beautiful!  We went on a really fun hike.  There were gorgeous views everywhere!  I really liked how much foliage there was and the fact that the weather was not too hot at all!  At a gift shop, I got an awesome aspen leaf necklace!  Since the necklaces were made of actual preserved leaves, each one was so unique and beautiful.  It was difficult to choose which one I wanted!  The one I finally did choose is so pretty!!  Every time I wear that necklace, I get lots of compliments on it.

After our visit to the Grand Canyon, we stopped at Grafton, Utah, which is a ghost town.  In the old cemetery there, Taylor was able to locate the grave of one of his ancestors who had lived in that area!

We had such a fun weekend with my Mom, Cheryl, and Boyd in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona!!!  I can’t wait to go to the Grand Canyon again someday!
