Grand Canyon & Red Rock Canyon

This year, the Pepsico Latin America convention took place in Las Vegas, and as usual, I love to make the most of my work trips. The amazing trip started in the lively city of Las Vegas and took me to a major bucket list spot: the Grand Canyon! We took a day trip tour to the Grand Canyon, which was an adventure filled with stunning views, vibrant colors, and great experiences. Here are the highlights of my trip!

Our journey began in Las Vegas, where the city lights and up beat atmosphere kicked off our adventure. From the glittering Strip to the lively casinos, Las Vegas was the perfect start to our getaway.

First up was the Grand Canyon, which we visited as a day trip tour from Las Vegas. Walking along the canyon rim, I was blown away by its size and the incredible shades of orange, red, and yellow. Each viewpoint offered a new, amazing view, making it feel like walking through a natural art gallery. I was so afraid of dropping my phone while taking pictures on the rim.

On the last day of the trip, we took a 30-minute ride from Las Vegas to Red Rock Canyon for a horseback riding tour, which was amazing. This excursion was not planned, so I am grateful they were able to squeeze us into a riding tour. Riding among the striking red rock formations and vast views was both exciting and peaceful. The views from horseback were simply breathtaking.

Throughout the trip, the vivid colors of the canyons were amazing. The play of light and shadow on the natural formations created an ever-changing landscape that was stunning to see.

As our adventure ended, we looked back on the sights, flavors, and experiences that Las Vegas offered. From the exciting nightlife and luxurious accommodations to the awe-inspiring natural wonders nearby, Las Vegas was the perfect gateway to our exploration of the Grand Canyon.

Crossing the Grand Canyon off my bucket list was a dream come true. These experiences exceeded all my expectations, offering a blend of natural wonder, adventure, and cultural richness. From the thrilling start in Las Vegas to the serene exploration of this iconic canyon, every moment was filled with awe and gratitude.

I’m already planning my next adventure, but the Grand Canyon will always hold a special place in my heart. If you get the chance to visit, I highly recommend it. Until next time, keep exploring and chasing your dreams! I can't wait to visit more canyons!
