We took the Grand Canyon via Sedona tour with Will as our guide. We departed our Phoenix hotel at 7 a.m. (right on time), and returned at appx 9 p.m. Between those hours was an amazing amount of information and beautiful scenery beyond expectations.

Will was our tour guide on Sunday - very friendly, funny, knowledgeable and just generally nice. One of the other passengers had never seen snow before, so Will made an impromptu stop on the way up for a snowball toss. We entered the park in a super dense fog.
