Kyle is the most spoiled origami frog of the world – this time is Grand Canyon!!
Kyle has been fascinated with all kinds of statues and monuments in DC, but he felt like going a bit wilder place – Grand Canyon.
Grand Canyon is so special because it’s one of the most unique canyons that uplifted straight without messing the layers of rock that exposes nearly two billion years of earth’s geological history. Kyle was amazed he said he could have jumped into the canyon. I stopped him.
After spending some time at Grand Canyon, we went a bit further and saw Monument Valley, around the northern border of AZ with southern UT. This place is uniquely known for a cluster of vast sandstone buttes (small mountains). This area lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation (Navajo Nation – Native American jurisdiction; it has its own timezone!)
“Watching the sunset at Monument Valley”
and we jumped over one of the buttes together…
Before saying bye to Monument Valley, Kyle wanted to say the famous line from the movie Forrest Gump, where Tom Hanks as Forrest suddenly stops running after he had been running for three years, two months, fourteen days and sixteen hours, gathering a small crowd of people. And Forrest says…
“I’m pretty tired… I think I’ll go home now.”
The next destination is Zion National Park, but Kyle decided to stop by the mysterious spot, called Horse Shoe Bend. This is one of the wonderous spot of Colorado River, where it bends itself in the shape of a horse shoe.
Kyle visited Zion National Park and Antelope Canyon, but they will be on the next post!
