Grand Canyon is a place I longed to visit, and I was standing in the middle of the Canyon on 9.9.09. What a date to be at the Canyon.
Flew into Vegas from San Jose for a 3 night stay, and signed up for this Heli tour from Vegas to Canyon. Cost me a bomb, but I suppose I am so near already, so - what the heck. Go!
It was a superb tour. The Grand Canyon is just that - Grand!
At Vegas, just walked along the strip and did some window shopping. The Casinos were awesome and the waitresses were.. well very well dresses, if you know what I mean.
Watched Le Reve at Wynn Hotel. What a show, superb use of the water and great acrobatic display. This kind of show is called a 'Cirque de Soleil' show.
Flew back to San Jose on Sept 11, another significant date in US.
