Never been to the Grand Canyon but had my first helicopter experience over the lakes in Central Florida a few years back with my daughter and grandchildren. The helicopter was amphibious so we took off and landed on a lake and did several touch-and-goes while in flight. It was exhilarating! The helicopter only held two passengers so I went up with my grandson and my daughter traveled with my granddaughter. We would have preferred to be together to ease our fears and to share the thrill but it was still a good time.

Your photo is fascinating. I was able to overcome my fear of the helicopter ride over lakes but don’t know if I could do the same over anything the size and depth of the Grand Canyon!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
