Today is 6/19/10
This is another "mostly" non-ride day. We spent a good amount of time in and around the Grand Canyon. OK, the literal translation is really "Big Hole". We spent time in the "museum" area and the Imax for the canyon. Perhaps one of the coolest things we did was a helicopter ride through the canyon. I and Hans each took the trip, although it was so windy, the first pilot decided he didn't feel comfortable with flying in that much wind. Myself, our videographer, and two other gentlemen, got moved over to another purveyor. We were told it was an upgrade and from my standpoint, never having spent any time in a helicopter, I'd say it was an upgrade.
Morten, Hans & I rode around for some time and check out some great scenes from Mother Nature. On our way out of the park, before getting back to Williams, we stopped at a great airplane, (mostly), museum. Very cool stuff. Admittedly, Morten and Hans knew MUCH more about the exhibits than Joey. I actually learned a tremendous amount and had a good time, too. Oh yeah, I did find my new tattoo. I think I'll do it full size, it's a bronze eagle that stands about 8 feet tall.
Time to call it a night and get ready to head out tomorrow.
