travel diary: new years at grand canyon national park ‣ december 2017

We said goodbye to 2017 and hello to 2018 in an interesting way. Alex, despite being born and raised in Phoenix, has never visited the Grand Canyon before; so we took a quick little trip up north with our friends to ring in the new year. We stayed at Yavapai Lodge, dined at Yavapai Tavern, watched a lot of Guy’s Grocery Games, and popped a bottle of champagne by the canyon’s rim as the clock struck midnight. It’s a much more mellow way to bring in the new year, but we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
