I've been to the Grand Canyon many, many times and not just after I moved to Arizona. I visited the canyon at least twice before I moved to the state. Above is a scanned slide that dates back to the mid-60's. I was probably still in school when these were taken on one of our family vacations.
These next four photos were taken one Thanksgiving Day when I joined my sister and her husband for Thanksgiving dinner at El Tovar Lodge at the Grand Canyon.
It had been snowing already at the canyon so it was fun for me coming from Phoenix to get a little taste of winter. There was even enough snow for someone to have made a snowman.
