Louise Speaks: Day 10: As we left Kanab and headed home, we decided to continue with the canyons and go see the greatest canyon of them all, the Grand Canyon.
But first on the way out of town heading east there is an old movie location of Gunsmoke TV Town. Since that was one of my favorite TV shows we just had to stop. It is a bit off the main road but on the way. The directions on finding this TV town is easy but the movie location is nothing like I remember. Very similar to Little Hollywood it is a run down movie set and nothing like you would ever remember seeing on any TV soon…but it is on our list of quirky things to see, so here we are. It was a very short stop and then we were on the road again.
Leaving Kanab and heading to the Grand Canyon, turns out we are still in the Grand Staircase–Escalante National Mounument. This place is huge. We have now been on three sides of this National Monument and by this time I’m saying, I’m getting pretty tired of looking at rocks. Truth is, the rock formations have been different on all three sides and very interesting to look at.
As we left Page and Lake Powell it was a quick turn off to head to the Grand Canyon. Now we have been to the Grand Canyon before but never to the East side. The West side of course has the Skywalk, the North side is calmer but just as beautiful as ever other side of the Grand Canyon. The South side is the side that attracts the most tourist and is connected to the East side. By entering the Grand Canyon thru the East Entrance you end up going by the South Rim and seeing the canyon in all it’s glory.
If you go back the through our blog there is a separate entry for the Grand Canyon and describes all three sides. It’s amazing to be able to say I have now seen the Grand Canyon from all sides, and still find every angle amazing.
Well it’s our last night so we are staying at the Grand Canyon and then heading home in the morning, The past 10 days touring southern Utah has been amazing, Like the other sides of the Grand Canyon, this side gets a rating of an A just like the other sides and Utah is simply a state like no other. I can’t wait to head north and see the rest of this wonderful state.
