美国西部之旅~Grand Canyon, Arizona



啊!美国之旅,回来已经4个多月了还没写完,一天未完成我的心还是不上不下。来到了西岸之旅的第10天,还有几篇就结束了,快马加鞭,一定要尽快完成它。



好,继续第10天(3/6/2012),那一天是要从拉斯维加斯出发至隔壁州 - Arizona的大峡谷Grand Canyon。

为了免麻烦我们不开车去,直接买了一日游,78早就必须出门到另一酒店集合。那集合的酒店其实就在我们入住酒店的后面,听起来不远,可是两间酒店都太大了,从我们酒店lobby走到集合地点大概需要15-20分钟。途中必须经过赌场,小孩可以大摇大摆、毫无阻拦地进入赌场,唯必须要有成人陪伴兼不得触碰赌桌上的所有。


我们终于站了上玻璃桥,但其实一点都不害怕的


旅游车在指定的集合地点把旅客一一接了后,就回到总部再办check-in手续。哇,好烦兼浪费时间!明明是大公司,为何要那么繁复?上了车,我们已经很累,司机在讲些什么。。。我们都有听没听。。。。这,就差点令我抱憾而归呢!(抱憾些什么?继续看下去会有分晓)


  直升机下谷底的那一刹那,心有离一离哦


大峡谷,这个举世闻名的自然奇观被我视为这次美国西岸之旅的重头戏。怎么说?因为大峡谷应该是我一生只到一次的地方,既然如此我一定要把那里主要的景点、主要的活动,一次过‘扫’在记忆里。所以出发之前,除了漫步于Skywalk这必要的环节,我还把helicopter  ride & boat  cruise一起买下(即乘直升机直达大峡谷谷底,再乘船穿梭于Colorado River)。





我们参加的是Grand Canyon West Rim Tour, 除了重点的skywalkhelicopter & boat 外,还包括附近一些景点如:Hoover DamEagle Point Guano Point Hualapai Ranch等。正因为我们都没把司机说的话听入耳里,所以原来自己身上少贴了一个重要的贴纸也懵然不知(让工作人员辨别我们签下的配套),也不懂原来乘坐直升机和船是必须在抵达后第一个就先要去进行的环节。我们竟然把它排到最后一个!天啊!当工作人员说可能赶不及上直升机的时候(因为要在指定的时间集合回酒店),我。。我。。我差点招架不住。

沙漠的感觉,看我已经顶不住把外套往头上盖了


除了难忘的景色、难忘的经历,还有难忘的一餐:美国之旅最难吃的一餐就在这里


当然最后,我们是能够顺利完成直升机+船的部分,只是有些赶。 赶的部分是直升机到谷底后,我们必须走一段路才到达河边。走向河边是往下走,所以除了晒超猛的太阳外并没难度。到回程往上行的时候,那段路才令人气喘,喘得像心肺快将撕裂的感觉。45度的艳阳下(你没看错,正是摄氏45度)、空气干燥、沙尘滚滚,还要加快脚步地赶。。。你们想象到吗? 3条瓜哼一声都没有,简直是我们的骄傲!

这一篇写得比较长,只因这一游会是我毕生难忘的其中一段。那里的美,我形容不来,你们自己看照片。来这个地方其实蛮辛苦,一生一次我够了。


 最后2张照片不是我们拍的,上skywalk所有随身物品都不能带上去,连鞋子都要脱。 拍照也是由工作人员拍了,你们喜欢就付钱买。我们买了所有的照片,他们再送官方照片的soft copy给我们。

有机会要问你参与那一个公司的团
可能我过去都是驾驶前往大峡谷
没有去尝试 skywalk,helicopter & boat
不过单看行程可以了解到你说的“赶”
哈哈!!值得啦,至少难忘1次

Vincent Cho said...

如果坐直升机的话,我可能会腿软…45度的艳阳高照,还有走这么一段路…我肯定是汗流浃背一身了!不简单!可是能抵达这里,也算是不枉此行啊!

小女人 said...

sockpeng,

如有听话,是绝对不会赶。一切都是我咎由自取。

vincent,

腿软?没鬼用啦你。

45度的艳阳下…>_< 我了解你为何拿外套这样遮了!!!不遮不行!你的三个瓜好料!
坐直升机哦,很爽叻!!!
那个玻璃桥看起来很可怕一下,可是我很有兴趣,哈哈哈哈!应该不会怕站上去。
这里真的很美很壮观!一生人来一次就够了啦,哈哈。
*听你的经验以后有什么跟团的都一定要听导游讲才安全@@

小女人 said...

珊姑娘,

对咯,45度,发烧的话都已经烧过龙料。。。哈哈哈

First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and
clear your head before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my
thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying
to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
Thanks!
