Grand... Is Not The Word

7th to 10th July, 2006, the NRI-Nanguys met half-way across the country. In my journey as a kiddo to adulthood, I have made many friends. Some have really stuck with me through thick and thin. Nanguys come into that category.

So here I was, with the NRI branch. Adit, Pals and me. And since you all know, Pals is known as the Rain-God. Where he goes, it rains.

This time was no different. We landed in Las Vegas by 10 PM, hopped into a rather uncomfortable coupe and drove out of Sin-City. After an all night drive, we reached the outskirts of the Canyon by 7 AM. A very spectacular drive from Vegas to Tusayan. Not a soul to be found on the freeway. I mean, not so much as a rest-area for miles. But as we got closer to Tusayan and the sun started to peek out, the sight was breathtaking. Also, a huge Elk greeted us outside our hotel and I knew I was in for a ball of a time.

My first view of the Canyon from Mather Point. This thing is really Grand. You have to be there to see it (or click the photo to enlarge) and feel the 'grandness'

Awesome snap of Bakshi... it almost looks unreal. Like a movie set. I glad he didnt keep walking. Heh!

The Colorado river flowing through the Canyon and me, awaiting the sunrise.

Not to make this a extrahumungouslylong post, I have decided to cut it into three parts. So more coming up soon....
