Another day, another early morning. Although I'm not usually a morning person, I am finding it pretty easy to get out of bed out here, given the time change. It's actually quite nice to get so much accomplished so early in the day--I wish this is how things came naturally to me at home!
We set out to hike on a trail called Queens Garden, which is 1.8 miles round trip. The trail winds down into the canyon, then you have to turn around and backtrack back up. Although it's not very long, it was a little rough on the knees to walk all of the way down, and then it was a bit challenging to hike uphill all the way back up! It was worth it for the views, though... holy moly.
Once unpacked, we headed out for dinner at a restaurant called Fiesta Mexicana. It was SO GOOD. Plus, they had awesome margaritas. Score!
Because we've been getting up so early, it's been easy to fall asleep fairly early, too. We're calling it another night, and we'll finish our journey to the Grand Canyon in the morning!
