It was awesome to see the view of Vegas and Arizona as we flew over head. It seemed like we were moving so slow but we were cruising along at 125 mph. Going over the Hoover Dam was awesome! When we were there before and took the Dam Tour the highway wasn't complete yet so it was nice to see it all done!
The top picture is at the top of the Grand Canyon and where we would go after our tour at the bottom. The second picture is the Grand Canyon Skywalk.... yep we walked it! 4,000 feet above the Colorado River!
Heading to the bottom of the Grand Canyon!
Of course Brandon thinks he needs his own helicopter!
Such a beautiful view!
After we had our champagne and snack at the base we flew up to the top. We arrived at the main terminal and took a bus to the couple other locations to look a the view.
This stop was called Eagle Point and the view was amazing!
We were excited to walk on the Skywalk which was a glass floor looking down into the Grand Canyon! Awesome! We aren't afraid of heights and seriously the pictures don't even do this place justice! Truly amazing!
We met some amazing people while we took this tour and they were on the helicopter tour with us. (6 people plus the pilot) This is Lee & Wendy Markus! Super sweet people and it's always nice to go somewhere and have someone that you can connect with!
Seriously, the pictures can't even touch how awesome this was!
We headed up to Guano Point to see what this was all about. The sign read "During the 1930's a boater passing through the Canyon discovered a cave which later was found to be rich with "Guano", bat droppings. This material was rich with nitrogen and very useful as fertilizer. The U.S. Guano Corporation had purchased the mining rights in 1957 and began to construct the Tramway to extract the Guano from the mine. Utilizing cable that panned the Canyon at 7,500 feet and the use of cable car for both the Guano and miners it was mined until early 1960. A few months later the cable was damaged by an Air Force Jet's tail and never re-opened. The cable head house remains as well as some remnants at the cave and it's now a tourist destination at Grand Canyon West."
We went to the 7:00 pm David Copperfield show at the MGM Grand Hollywood Theater. I still can't figure out how in the world he did all the stuff he did. We sat 3rd row and you could see everything but how in the world he did it I'll never know! Really good show and interacted with the crowd well. I recommend seeing him if you get a chance too!
