After a bit of last minute fun in Park City and then driving on to Henderson, Nevada (a suburb of Las Vegas)...

We drove on to see the Hoover Dam. It was quite a sight to see.

We then drove on to the Grand Canyon National Park, where we stayed for one night.

We did a six kilometer hike the first night and then the next day took a tour to Desert View Watchtower.

Zoe thought for sure that this must be Rapunzel's Tower.

We drove along Historic Route 66. Stopped and visited a museum and ate at the Route 66 diner.

Looks like such a fun trip! So great that you can take your time and enjoy so many sights along the way. How on earth did you manage a 6 km hike with the little kids?

My question too, a 6km hike with more than one kid!! Wow!

The trip looks absolutely fantastic! I am some day going to have to see the Grand Canyon. Seems bizarre that this weekend I (finally) watched "Due Date"! ;)

Gosh you huys keep busy! Awesome photos as always and I like Zoe's take on Rapunzel's Castle!

Love the tiny doors! I'm guessing it really is Rapunzel's castle!
