BREATHTAKING VIEWS BEGIN TO COME UP RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY EYES DURING A HELICOPTER FLIGHT OVER THE GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM !
The main reason I went to LAS VEGAS was to visit its surroundings (nearby or not). One of the options was to know the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM (by bus, by car or by helicopter)! Since I really didn't know whether I'd ever go back there, I decided to do everything I could, so, my tour to that place included: a bus from LAS VEGAS to BOULDER CITY; a plane from BOULDER CITY to the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM, flying over the HOOVER DAM and LAKE MEAD; a helicopter, flying over the CANYON and going down to the COLORADO RIVER; a boat, navigating in the COLORADO RIVER; a helicopter, going up again to the edges to the CANYON; a bus to visit the surroundings, including in the SKYWALK in the EAGLE'S POINT and finally, a plane, back to BOULDER CITY and a bus, back to LAS VEGAS!
This picture was taken while taking a helicopter flight, in a moment where it had just crossed the edge of that abyssal wonder!
