All the photos I took of Grand Canyon with Michael's family.

Among the number of Michael's relatives that came to his and my wedding from distant parts were his sister, Dorothy Ann, her husband, Bob; and his other sister's son, Chris. Along with my son, John, we rented a van and made a touristy journey to visit Grand Canyon.

It was an interesting trip. I hadn't spent that much time with Michael's family, yet; and I wasn't used to the way they do things. For example, when my family travelled, we got to our destination as fast as we could so we could spend more time there. Michael's family, on the other hand, eats. Each time we stopped at a restaurant for a meal, we ended up spending at least two hours there while everyone talked.

Consequently, by the time we got to Grand Canyon, it was already late in the day and weather was moving in.

When we poured out of the rental van, we ran straight for the first scenic lookout we came to: Mather Point.

Indian Gardens, the spot of green down in the Canyon, is about 5 miles down Bright Angel Trail.

One of the few spots from Grand Canyon's South Rim where one can actually see the Colorado River below.

Fortunately, the rain never hit us. But we sure could see it falling elsewhere in the Canyon.
