|Hazy, but beautiful|
The early spring weather at the Grand Canyon was all over the place. During our main hike in the middle of the afternoon I started with a long-sleeved shirt base layer and put on/took off a light winter coat as needed. Some times I added a rain poncho to accommodate a few light sprinkles. As the day wore on it got colder and windier. After dinner we took a shuttle bus to the canyon rim to watch the sunset. Sadly, about ten minutes before the sun went completely down a heavy layer of clouds rolled in right over the canyon rim, blocking most of what we'd come to see.

Sunday morning it was clear and sunny. We were able to walk to breakfast, then checked out of the hotel and drove to a nearby church for mass. Next we drove back to the downtown area and explored on foot, then got back in the car and headed south back to Phoenix (detouring over to Sedona for lunch). We arrived in Phoenix shortly before dinnertime. After dinner we played a couple of rounds of Rummykub before heading to bed.
Monday morning after Son Tony left for work, Hubby Tony and I took a walk through his neighborhood, came home and showered, then packed up our stuff and left for the airport and home.
