The first leg to Phoenix Arizona was great. Skies were blue. The view wonderful, and we flew right over the mesas and Grand Canyon National Park. It's like having one of those helicopter tours over the canyon, for free. Since our air ticket was sponsored by US Airways too.
The Grand Canyon was simply amazing, and these pictures don't even do her justice. I was limited by the window and where I was seated (at the turbines). But we could see the whole long stretch of the canyons. No wonder it can be seen from outer space. It's so massive.
When we reached Phoenix though, we had delay after delay announced... for the connecting flight to Chicago. Had mentioned this in an earlier post.
