Is it really Monday already? Gotta be honest, I’m not quite ready for it yet. Yesterday was one of those beautiful fall days, so it was the perfect opportunity to go outside and shoot some pictures. It’s a shame the light goes away so quickly these days, but I still think fall is decently represented right here. It’s kind of beautiful to see how the colors change from green to orange and yellow in just one month – just see for yourself here (same park). I added this cute fluffy pompom on this navy blue hat myself, it was actually part of another hat that I didn’t really like – except for the pompom part. I’m quite pleased with the result, if I may say so myself!

Oh Grand Canyon, how I miss seeing you so. As I already said this summer, it’s the most beautiful piece of nature I’ve seen so far – impressive, (ahum) grand, stunning and simply overwhelming – so I decided that it deserved a separate post. The travel bug has bitten me once again (I’m going to Thailand later this month) which means I’m digging through some of my travel pictures and I couldn’t leave them unposted. These are some of my Grand Canyon impressions – if I look really scared and slightly uncomfortable in the pictures, it’s because I am! You can’t imagine the depth of this thing until you’re standing at the very edge of it. Trust me, it’s seriously scary if you have just the slightest fear of heights. Secondly, I was super surprised about the fact that there is no kind of security whatsoever. Of course they can’t guard the entire Grand Canyon (duh) but since we visited the tourist drop off points I expected there to be lots of American security guards with thick accents telling us we couldn’t go that close to the edge. But nothing, zero, nada. You can just jump in if you like (not that I would recommend that kind of thing).
To sum up – an impressive piece of nature, worth the trip, full freedom to roam around and do what you like, bearable heat and still on my mind about 6 months later. Grand Canyon, you were grand indeed!
