I collect dots – or rather I collect people!  Visitors come to see the Grand Canyon from just about everywhere in the world. Some from places that were new to me! So I have an atlas and together we find a visitor’s home and mark the spot with a colorful dot.  It is fun to see how many other people have visited the Canyon from their home country. I had two families visiting from BALI in the same week.  And, no, they didn’t know each other.

Then I share my home with the guests.  What to do, what to see, and where to go visiting the Canyon to make wonderful memories.

Stop at the information counter at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center in Tusayan and GIMME A DOT!

About the Author

Joy Grand Canyon

Joy taught environmental sciences at Southern Vermont College and became active in outdoor land use.  Joy now lives ‘off-the-grid’ near the Grand Canyon on an acreage with solar power, and hauls water for her own needs and for her struggling raised-bed desert garden, dogs, cat, chickens, and Garrett-the-goose. Joy has rafted the Colorado River from Moab to Lake Mead, hiked many of the trails, and stayed at Phantom Ranch several times either by hiking or by mule.  Learning and reading is her passion, and she is constantly learning more about the Grand Canyon.

Joy is well traveled but never found a place that was more well suited for her than the Grand Canyon.  This is her home.  Stop in the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and allow her to share her home with you.
