Grand Canyon in Winter!!

I remembered so vividly how torturous and physically demanding it was to drive ALL THE WAY from Los Angeles --> Las Vegas --> Grand Canyon! It was a total of 8 hours drive ok!!
So this time round we're a lil clever, we booked with a tour to go to Las Vegas so that we can avoid the driving + this tour brings us to Grand Canyon too!

I think it was a clever choice though it sucked very much because the tour guide was a Chinese, and he had to speak in 2 different language - mandarin and english. Not to mention his english was.....................

Throughout the journey, he was speaking like this:
"Later u will be ah.. meeting me ah.. at the DU-ER lobby" (what he meant was TOUR lobby, i was scratching my head so hard like.. WHAT IS DU-ER LOBBY?!?!)
"We ah.. bringling (bringing) u to the.. ah... buffet.. $10 dollah veli cheap."

Ok enough said, it was horrible listening to him for the entire journey. *turns off*

It's pictures time!! :D
(Anyway i really think that it is more worthwhile visiting Grand Canyon in Summer than in Winter!) Click "here" for my Summer Grand Canyon post! :)

Then we had our lunch... IN THE COLD!!!! Without any firestand or anything y'know.. i was trembling through out!! Not to mention that were those BIG black birds hanging around the eating area, i was so scared that they would snatch away the food! :O
And I was feeling thirsty.. so i went to take some hot water cuz i wanted to dissolve my tea powder. AMAZINGLY.... it was only a short mere walk from where they served the food to my seat, prolly a 15secs walk? When i reached my table and poured the tea powder in it, IT JUST WOULDN'T DISSOLVE.................................... cuz while I was walking, THE HOT WATER ACTUALLY BECAME COLD!!
YES... the weather was THAT cold!!!!!!
LOL hilarious much!

Then we were feeling quite bored because we did not try out the skywalk/helicopter ride/boat ride as it all involved $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$....
So to kill time, we decided to use the lil stones to form the word "GRAND CANYON" and it turned out fabulous!!!
