Grand Canyon Excursion

If you look at the picture on the right, you will notice two cliffs. The left cliff is actually part of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, and if you look closely enough, you will notice our Recruits waving and posing for a picture on the South Rim. If you have visited the Grand Canyon before, you probably already know that there is a protective fence protecting the edge of the rim for safety, but if you’ve never been to the Grand Canyon before, it sure looks pretty scary, doesn’t it?

The elevation at the Grand Canyon will generally range between 7,000 and 8,000 feet, and can be higher in some of the other scenic locations. During this outing, we enjoy lunch in the shade, and an environmental awareness class presented by Cm. Denton. This trip has some of the most beautiful sights in the entire world and should not be missed.

It’s a long ride to the Grand Canyon, usually 4-5 hours by bus, but when we arrive, we are always reminded that the trip was worthwhile. The very first view of the Grand Canyon is breathtaking. People who have never been here before always have a vision of what the Grand Canyon looks like, through pictures or postcards, but a photo is nothing like actually being there and seeing it for yourself. During this excursion, our recruits learn and understand how to truly see the “big picture”. The weather is usually breezy and comfortable, making this trip especially pleasant. As is our tradition, our recruits always send home a postcard from the Grand Canyon; watch for it in your mail box!
