For those of you who don’t know, my husband flies helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon. He has been working at this job for about a year and half, and we finally made arrangement for me to go for a ride with him.  I don’t know what took me so long, but I finally made it up there. It was amazing!

The photos don’t do it justice. 

To be honest, I didn’t take too many photos in the air.

Part of the tour included landing in the bottom. We got the waterfall site, which was nice because it was a little bit away from the other landing spots. Tours are always coming in and out, so we didn’t have to be in the middle of it.

The tour across the way brought in a wedding party. It only included the couple, a minister and a photographer, but how romantic to be married at the bottom of the grand canyon!
I know, throwing up the peace sign, cliche and a bit lame. BUT it is sort of a inside joke between my husband and me. Apparently a lot of the foreign customers love it when he throws the peace sign in the group pictures, and sometimes even give him bigger tips. 
See those bags by my feet? Ya, they are filled with puke from a motion-sick passenger

Can you believe I am married to this stud?

It’s hard to even fathom how deep the Grand Canyon is. I have seen it from all the regular tourist sites, but it was truly amazing from the air. I definitely recommend an air tour!

  1. What an amazing job your hubby has! And I totally get the peace sign joke. We have a ton of Japanese tourists/immigrants/students here and I have lots of friends who are into studying the Japanese language and culture. Guess what they do every time a camera comes out? Throw up a peace sign!

  2. Whoa! Your husband works for GCH?! I used to be a copywriter for Papillon/GCH and would go on several of the tours there as part of my job. So much fun!

    Glad you enjoyed yourself. Definitely an amazing trip.

    1. Really?! I didn’t know that! That sounds like a pretty cool gig. That’s awesome that you got to go, it is so amazing to see from the air!
