From Landscapes and wildlife to history and adventure, what’s the one thing about the Grand Canyon that has intrigued you?

The absolute incomprehensible vastness of the place. If you had the ability to start at milepost zero and had a year to explore to mile 277 and visit and document photographically the whole canyon, side canyons, and side, side canyons all the way, then come back exactly one year later and do it again, you would visit two different worlds.

Visit to the River

What are five things your Backpack to the Canyon must contain?

I would say five more back packs, but dehydrated food, emergency supplies to include a contact beacon, water with purification tablets, salt and a camera with a sunlight recharger.


What is the best way to get to the Grand Canyon – By Air, By Road or By Rail? Why?

I am an RHD Amputee and we flew, but road to me would have given the most options.

What is travel to you in one word?


What are three tips for an awesome budget trip to the Grand Canyon?

My Norwegian friends did the best, drive, tents, your own food.


What type of camera did you bring? Any tips on shooting the Grand Canyon?

A Canon DSLR. I bought a 16-300 mm lens for this trip. It had 95% of the options needed. Very close, very far, and everything in between.

What surprised you about the Grand Canyon?

The realization of what you are looking at, at the moment is vast, but is way less than a quarter of one percent of the canyon. Whereas Niagara Falls 100% can be seen at once for Natural Wonders.

As a travel destination, how would you rank the Grand Canyon from 1 to 10?
