Cross Country Road Trip: Grand Canyon

Thursday, September 24, 2015

The first stop on our road trip was at the Grand Canyon. We spent two nights here and stayed at Mather Camp Ground. My sister, Megan, lives in Salt Lake City and she met us at the Grand Canyon.

We did our grocery shopping in Flagstaff and cooked on our camping stove. We packed a picnic lunch to have at the Grand Canyon.

Tips for traveling with dogs:
  • dogs must be on a leash at all times
  • dogs are not allowed on the shuttles. We used Megan's handicap parking pass, so finding parking wasn't a problem.
  • dogs are not allowed below the rim. Dogs are allowed on the rim trails, which is 12 miles long
  • dog kennels are available, and reservations are required.
  • fill up a water bottle at the Visitor Center and bring a collapsible water bowl 
  • if your dog gets overwhelmed by crowds like Finn, you only need to walk about 100 feet down the Rim Trail and the crowds completely disappear
  • the photos above show a railing, but the majority of the trail doesn't have a railing
