Day 9: Gran Canyon West & O Cirque Soleil

April 5, 2012

We woke up early to check out, put all the stuff in the car and go to the north gate to wait at 7:30am for the van that would take us to the airport.
At the Vegas 500 offices we paid the rest and jumped into a 9 seater Cessna. The nice thing of this company is that there is always a window seat, the windows are big and the wings are over the plane so they don’t disturb the views.
After 30 min flying around Boulder city, Lake Mead we landed in the west rim of the canyon. We took a shuttle that took us to Eagle point and Hualapai Indian village and finally Guano point where we ate.
The views are amazing!!! We did not go to the skywalk because we thought it was not worth it.
We expected that the plane would take us inside the canyon but looks like only the helicopters do this. It was sort if a taxi only so if I have I recommend something is that you better come here in your own and then take an helicopter here.
Now we are waiting for the plane to go back to Vegas. I will continue tonight provided I find wifi to post this.
