Day 19 - Antelope Canyon, Grand Canyon

In the morning we did a tour of the Antelope Canyon. Unfortunately, the Photo Tours were sold out and we could only do a short tour of 1 1/2 hours. In addition the canyon was very crowded as there are still numerous tourists (probably due to the weak dollar) which is quite unusual for this time of the year. The canyon was really beautiful, but taking pictures was quite difficult due to the crowds and at the missing tripod (which I left in the car :-().

After the tour we drove to the Grand Canyon where we stayed at the Mother Campground. After having set up our tents we drove to several of the viewpoints. The weather was not really good for taking pictures as it was cloudy and the sun only came out occassionally. But still the views were once again very impressive.

For dinner we went to Tusayan where also the National Geographic Visitor Center is located. We got tickets for the famous Grand Canyon IMAX film, which was really well worth watching and had pizza at the Pizza Hut.

In the Altelope Canyon we also took 1 1/2 hours trip and in the last moment I decided to take our tripod anyway (M. run back to our car to take it). But we had even worst wetter (it was raining) in the Grand Canyon so we also enjoyed IMAX movie. ;-) :-D
