Arizona contains the world-famous Grand Canyon. There are a number of ways to get there of course but we chose to go by helicopter from Las Vegas (in Nevada) which, while more expensive, means you save quite a lot of time and land down in the canyon itself. It certainly makes you feel small.
As the helicopter headed in to the site (playing the theme music from Indiana Jones), the thing that strikes you most is surely the size of the canyon. It is BIG! It is quite incredible how the ground seems to disappear away beneath you. America has so many vast landscapes that it is hard to do it justice with a camera at times.
For somewhere that looks so barren and devoid of life, it was interesting to see squirrels in the area, and of course plant life by the Colorado River.
