My inner ten-year-old couldn’t be happier.  Recently, I fulfilled a childhood dream and visited the Grand Canyon.  The trip began with a long flight to Los Angeles and an even longer (or so it seemed) drive through the Mojave Desert.  Many thanks to my good friend Sally Anne who drove me from LA to AZ.... 

We arrived after dark.  Upon checking into the lodge, I wanted to see just how close to the rim our rim-side lodge with peek-a-boo view of the canyon actual was.  As my eyes adjusted to the moonlight, I could see outlines of rock formations.  “Is that it?”  I stepped off the walking path that was just a few yards from our door, and crawling on hands and knees, felt my way to the edge.  Lying on the cold stone, looking down into the abyss, with a million stars overhead, I could almost see her .

That night I tossed and turned like an anxious child on Christmas eve.  The following photos tell the rest of the story...
