|Great tailed Grackle
We had the amazing trip booked to fly over the Grand Canyon.
When we took off I was slightly nevous because the helicopter was shaking.
After a while of flying we could see some boats that look like the size of ants then I realised how high up I was.
It was really difficult to take in the scale of the canyon and it was interesting to hear from the pilot about the Indians that own the land.
When we landed we got to walk on the Sky walk, a glass walkway above the canyon which gave us chance to look down and see how far it was - Scary

At one rest stop we had an opportunity to look around and see what animals live in the desert.
The ranger showed us where to watch Rattle snakes and told us that there were Coyotes living in the area, that got me excited. He had some photos on his phone of the Coyotes around the toilet block.
Whilst looking we spotted a lizard, we didn't see any snakes even though it was 95 degrees.

Just like at home the carpark was full of crows. The rangers said these birds are a pest to everyone as they empty the rubbish bins.
On the side of the toilet was this sign. I like the last sentence!
