Thursday, August 19, 2010 : From Losee Canyon to Grand Canyon


roadmap-us mark-5-5-us Only dream-like landscapes along our way, most notably the Vermilion Cliffs and the Painted Desert.
attractions-us mark-5-5-us Horseback riding is the only way to discover Losee Canyon. Grand Canyon at sunset is superb.
weather-us mark-3-5-us Cool but nice weather during our horseback ride. An end-of-the-world storm on the Vermilion Cliffs, then weather getting better, and bright on Grand Canyon. What a contrast !
hotel-us mark-4-5-us The Holyday Inn Express in Tusayan is another predictable and comfortable chain hotel. The welcome service, professional, slightly sounds like assembly-line work, but it's mid-August crowd in Grand Canyon.


A day of big weather contrast and absolutely gorgeous landscapes.
  favorite-us Horsheshoe Bend, a beautiful bend on the Colorado River, close to Page. A very short diversion for a spectacular show. An absolute must-see !
