    Grand Canyon Shot Glasses

    by machomikemd Written Nov 23, 2013

    Having been an avid Collector of Refrigerator Magnets and Shot Glasses, I must buy a shot glass of The Iconic Grand Canyon here in the Visitor's Center of the South Rim in Maher's Point to be a part of my extensive colection of Shot Glasses at home and here, you can buy a variety of Shot Glasses as souvenir items at the Visitors Center which has souvenir shops selling it and they are available in different types and themes like frosted glass, pewter, aluminum, tempered glass and more and have a number of designs. they retail from $ 2.99 to 8.99 a piece, depending on the type and design you want.

    A Unique July 4th on the North Rim

    by AKtravelers Written Dec 13, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's hard to imagine a more beautiful American place to spend the Fourth of July than the Grand Canyon. But the Independence Day celebration on the North Rim is far from typical. Because the arid climate creates a high risk of forest fire, there are no fireworks. Instead, the National Park employees stage a parade on horseback/muleback while other employees douse them with squirt guns and supersoakers of the most drenching kind. If visitors happen to have any, er , water-arms, they are allowed to participate though they must be warned that the riders come with their own waterguns and will squirt back. Because we had cameras, we opted to stay on the sidelines and do our shooting with film. Still, it was quite fun to watch.

    There are several different types people that visit the Grand Canyon. There are those that just want to see it and then drive on. That's fine, but I wouldn't do it unless pressed for time. There are those like me that want to see it and then hike into it! :) Then there are those crazies who try to make it to the river and back in one day! ;) Or those people that try to go down in sandals or barefeet... or maybe they try to go down with skateboards?!? I saw something weird like that. Anyway, several different types of people here.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Havasupai Indians in general are very friendly. However, you should ask for permission before taking their picture, as we did before taking this picture.

    We were walking along the trail back up to the village when we came across this father and son and another Indian. They invited us to sit and talk as they put away their *peace* pipe. And they shared with us some pictures from a recent Pow-Wow, in which the son was a performer.

    The father also mentioned that they were sitting on the foundation of his grandfather's house. It is their custom to burn down the house after one passes away. After 10 years, they can rebuild on the site.
