You will find the most exciting entertainment possible at Las Vegas shows, but the most spectacular “show” of nature will be the unrivaled sunset at the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon during sunset reinforces why the Grand Canyon ranks among the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. What a sight to behold! Waning sunlight with red and orange spectrum pierces through clouds and sky above and mixes splendidly with refracted light off the pigmented layers of the canyon. It is as if all the meticulous sculpting over millions of years by nature was just for this single moment, a debut performance that transcends the space continuum just for your viewing pleasure.
After the glitter and glamor of Las Vegas, recover your inner balance by treating yourself with an excursion faraway from all the neon. Purge your stress and unwind by reconnecting with an ever evolving region of Nature held since primitive Earth. Be in the moment as you bask in the light of sunset. Allow it to overwhelm your senses and cleanse your spirit.
