Sunrise, sunset and adventures in the Grand Canyon

There’s no place on earth that can inspire your sense of adventure quite like the Grand Canyon. It makes you feel tiny and insignificant in comparison to the sheer vastness of the canyon. But it also makes you feel strong and in awe of our incredible world.

After my trip to the US I found myself with hundreds of incredible sunrise and sunset photos. Just looking at them makes me want to pack my bags and set out on another adventure.

So what are you waiting for?

Grab your hiking boots and a map. It’s time for an adventure.

    I’m sitting in my bed post-op as I read this and your pictures and quotes have filled me with a longing to recover quicker so I can get back out there! My children are finally of an age where they could cope with a trip like this, and we’ve had adventure on a much smaller scale for so long now. I’ve just added the Grand Canyon to my bucket list!

    Sunset at the Grand Canyon is one of the most mesmerising experiences I had had whilst travelling in America. We only stopped by for a couple of hours but next time I am definitely going to take my hiking boots and have a real adventure.

    Love this post mixed with those incredible quotes. I visited the Grand Canyon ages ago when I was younger and had no camera so I’ll have to visit again at some point!

    The Grand Canyon is a dream on mine! I’m from the US and I still haven’t made it to that part of the country. Beautiful pictures!

    Great inspirations pictures and words. I am lucky to be able to see Grand Canyon. But there are many places on earth to see yet. I hate to be stuck here for the time being. Thanks for taking me away for a few minutes.

    Nothing commands my respect quite like nature, and sites like the Grand Canyon are no exception. I’ve never been but would absolutely love to go. It seems to me like it would be a really humbling experience!
