Exploring the Grand Canyon & Her Reflections


20160322_150549_resizedToday was our last day here at the Grand Canyon and we decided to hike into the canyon itself a little ways in, in between our work day.

I had never hiked in, in the maybe five or so times I’ve visited (mostly when I was a little girl except for this time and last May), but since we aren’t able to camp and leave the little ones behind at home, and we didn’t have a full day needed to go to the bottom and back up again, we decided to go as far as we were inspired to.

20160322_124933_resizedThis ended up being about a third of the way (the total is nearly 10 miles down), which was perfect.20160322_133811_resized

It’s been pretty chilly, which is nice, but not as cold as it usually is here at this time I guess. The RV park manager said they’ve never had so many people here for Spring Break because there’s usually snow.

But we’ve had gorgeous days and amazing sunsets every night, with temperatures in the high 50’s, low 60’s mostly in the day time.

20160321_185127_resizedToday it got chillier coming down to high 40’s. We’ve also had crazy winds the last two days at 26+ miles per hour – clearing out the old energy for the new!

Anyway, we enjoyed a beautiful afternoon, packing a lunch that we shared at the top of the South Rim, and then descending into the canyon.20160322_130620_resized

We saw some cool petroglyphs that included images that appeared to be a turtle (yay!), lizard, and some other symbols.20160322_134130_resized20160322_134145_resized

Lots of squirrels were excitedly chirping away, saw the burrows descending led by the guides, I found a sparkly rock that has joined my stone garden, and I brought along my new orange calcite heart from Sedona that I sat upon the canyon’s rocks to absorb the ancient energy like I did at Bell Rock with it.20160322_133148_resized20160322_141051_resized20160322_141102_resized20160322_135046_resized

I started out bundled in layers and then stripped down to my tank.

20160322_134848_resizedThe journey was beautiful and I was amazed how easy it was to ascend. We did the down and up in exactly the same time.

Perhaps it’s all the hiking we’ve been doing putting us in great shape, the vegan dark chocolate with blueberries from Endangered Species Chocolate that just so happened to have a sea turtle on the package that we ate before ascending, or perhaps it was the energy I was feeling, as it just felt to flow with ease.

Either way, I marveled at the rugged majesty and raw beauty of the Grand Canyon and how she reflects our own raw beauty in all of our beautiful layers and processes that make up who we are in essence.20160322_134159_resized

I made a video after returning home, once I took a warm shower, made some vegan hot chocolate, and snuggled into cozy clothes on the bed to reflect. I’ll share it soon.

But for now, here are photos of our day in the canyon….a beautiful send off before heading out tomorrow morning to Lake Powell for the day.

20160322_133737_resizedWe shifted our itinerary from Marble Canyon to there, following our inner guidance.

So we’ll be in transit from the Grand Canyon to the lake while we experience the energy of the Full Moon Eclipse.

Wishing you a revealing Full Moon to your truest authenticity and may you shine your light in inspiring ways to others, as the Moon shines upon you.

  1. Walking My Path: Mindful Wanderings in Nature

    Wow, the picture of the sun with blue rays! Spectacular! All the pictures, so great. It’s so funny how you are following my tracks from last year, I went Grand Canyon to Prescott. Then Colorado later in summer, then a week on a house boat in Lake Powell. Have you been their yet? The faces in the rocks and shapes and the reflections of color on the water. So beautiful. I didn’t get to antelope canyon, where I still want to go. The slot canyons. Are you going to some of the parks in Utah? Bryce, Zion, Arches, Canyon Lands? Well first things first…really enjoy Lake Powell!! I took over 1500 pictures there. I just couldn’t stop clicking. Everything was insanely gorgeous.
    Blessings and hugs,
    Mary
