The Grand Canyon

Any of you fine folks been to the Grand Canyon? The kids start spring break in a few weeks so we are loading up the motorhome (I hate to think about the gas) and heading out from Southern California on the 22nd. We are going to stop in Vegas for one night so the kids can see it then itís off to the Grand Canyon. Weíre staying at Mathers camp ground on the south rim and Iíve read good things about it. Would love any info others may have about the campground and perhaps other things to do while visiting the canyon and yes, I will be grilling plenty O good things. Thanks in advance.

Not sure when they are doing it, but soon they will be releasing
horredous amounts of water from mead and flooding the canyon
to epic levels.
Something about rebuilding all the sandbars and other stuff.
Would be seriously cool if you're there when it happens.
Take lots of pics & have a safe trip!

I agree on the flood thing. Don't happen that often. Take pics.

I've been 3 times, hiked halfway down twice (just enough to see the river)...the third time I hiked about 1/5 of the way down on the Bright Angel Trail and went back up. Good thing cause 20 minutes later it down poured for 2 hours. Layer if you're going to hike. Pack some cheapy ponchos, lots of water, and snacks. Nice a cool at the top and hot while hiking down, although unsure at this time of year. Twice I camped there and once hoteled it in Flagstaff. Hoover Dam!!?? Sorry if it stuff you already know...better safe than sorry! Right!?

Screw the price of gas. When is the next time you can spend this kind of time with your family? Just do it. I know you will, way too much fun. Have a great time.

We were out there a couple of years ago and took a tour to the Hopi reservation and visited a village that has been continuously inhabited for 1000 years. If you want to gain a real appreciation of our life style or make sure your kids have it, it's a great place to visit and not too far from the canyon.
