cronkitehhh Travel


That moment when you come face to face with what existed on the pages of books, newspapers, magazines and films, thinking they were just imaginations of the writers and practically no words came but stares!
That was the feeling at Grand Canyon, Canyon De Chelly and Monument valley. Each of these wonders and natural formation were a beauty to behold. Carved, shaped, all colored by the awesomeness of the Almighty who created the Heavens and the earth.
Though I had been to the Horse shoe band and even sailed on the Colorado River, I was still taken away by this magnificent work of art by the Artist of all artists. I always say being close to nature affords me the opportunity to get closer to God, taking in all of His awesomeness and my visit to the Grand Canyon was no exception. From all angles and points it remained magnificent, gigantic and almost indescribable.

The tour to that region also included experiencing the culture and people of Navajo, the native Americans or those who are also referred to as American-Indians. Driving through all of the slopes, hills and valleys was thrilling plus seeing the Big Hogan and sleeping overnight in the Hogan. It was quite an experience, my very first time. We had a taste of what happened at night, storytelling, dancing and singing round camp fires and of course watching the sun rise and set. It was so beautiful.
