We left Williams at about 8 the next day, Monday March 15. We got to the Grand Canyon and parked. We looked around for a bit, and took a bus around the rim a little bit. Then we went back outside the park, and ate at a Pizza Hut Express. We then got some supplies, and went back to the canyon. We parked and then hiked about an hour down the rim, which is about 1/4 of the way, maybe not that much. It was very scenic. Then it took us about 2 hours to hike back up. It was fun.
Then we went to a point and took a look at it again. I thought, before I saw it, that I'd be like, "Here's the canyon, big deal, let's go." But it really is awesome, even for a not-so-nature-lover like me. Then we drove to Desert View, about 20 miles east of the main village. There there is a castle thing, and you can get a good view from there. That is where we saw the canyon last. Coincidentally, this is where we saw a couple from UW-Platteville who were also on spring break. It's kinda weird travelling 2000 miles only to meet someone from school in an old castle in the middle of the desert.
