We decided instead of gifts for each other for Christmas that we would take a trip to Las Vegas. As soon as we got to Vegas, we rented a car to drive to the Grand Canyon for sunset. One hour after waiting in line for the rental car, we were on our way to make the four-hour drive to the Grand Canyon…..until we ran into Hoover Dam traffic 30 minutes down the road. As I was taking in the beautiful scenery and trying to come up with car games, Trey was slowly panicking. It seemed as though we would not make it to the Grand Canyon by sunset after all.
This ended up being up a blessing in disguise! As we rolled into Tusayan, the little town by the Grand Canyon, around 6:30 (just after sunset) we decided to go into the park anyways to scope out a spot for sunrise the next morning. Seeing the Grand Canyon with an almost full moon and clear skies was an unforgettable event, especially with a foot and a half of snow on the ground. The next morning we woke up early to see the gorgeous sunrise even though it was 15 degrees with a wind chill of 2 degrees.
We watched the sunrise at Mather Point and then we drove around to several spots until we came to Hopi Point. Just as I was explaining that this was my favorite spot by far, Trey turned me around, told me I was “the love of his life”, got down on one knee and proposed!
