We had been planning for over a year to visit the Grand Canyon during our trip to Arizona, so this became an easy addition to Tori’s Bucket List. What made it even more special was that it was Brennan’s first time to see it as well.
If you’ve never been there, it’s truly a must. You can stand there looking for hours on end without becoming bored. Amazing that so many people come to see this gigantic hole in the ground!

Thanks to the Miks family for making this possible! ❤️
