After the meetings were over we headed to the Grand Canyon. The views were amazing. The wildlife was abundant. Mule deer were walking beside the road, we could walk right by them. We saw elk also. We stayed at "El Tovar", this hotel was built in 1905. It was gorgeous, styled after a Swiss Chalet. In the morning, there were more mule deer walking around the hotel. There was snow on the ground. It was a relaxing day and a half vacation!
