The Grand Canyon was the first adventure trip Aracely and I ever took together. Not only did we want to visit the Grand Canyon, we wanted to hike to the bottom and back out. The backpacking was definitely going to be a challenge, but so was the fact that this was going to be our first time being together over night. We expected to be dirty, cranky and exhausted during our 4-day hiking adventure. It was all of that, and more. We survived, and began making more check marks on our bucket list in the years to come. If the Grand Canyon is on your bucket list, start searching for flights to Phoenix now, and make your dreams a reality.
