Greetings from Grand Canyon National Park

With Alzheimer’s in our family for 3 generations it is important to live life to it’s fullest. In 2016 my daughter and I began to build memories together by visiting a different national park each year. So, in 2016 we went to Big Bend and Ft. Davis. April 17, 2017 we hiked the Bright Angel Trail and South Rim Trail of the Grand Canyon. Then went to the Painted Desert and Petrified Forrest. Experiencing the beauty and grandeur of God’s creation reminds us of His love. We are so blessed to have the national parks to remind us that modern day technology while useful can be a distraction.

Sincerely,
Vickie

One look across the enormous chasm confirms just why this inspirational place is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a must-see destination for so many travelers. The park also protects a wealth of biological diversity, including numerous endemic and threatened species and several rare ecosystems.
