We started off the day by taking the free shuttle to the Visitor's center to check out the programs and get Andrew started on becoming a Junior Ranger. He needed to listen to a Ranger Program and do some workbook pages about how the Grand Canyon makes him feel and draw some pictures. In the end, he made a promise to the Ranger to take care of the Grand Canyon and the earth and received a Junior Ranger badge and certificate. We also went to the Yavapai Observation station that has panoramic views of the canyon. We hiked some along the South Rim, looked through a telescope to see the Colorado River, and had ice cream. All in all, a GREAT day!
