Far from home schooling

We left LA Tuesday morning at 7AM and were hiking down from the South Rim by 3:30pm.

What we saw at the Grand Canyon: 5 mountain goats, blue jay, squirrels, chipmunk, bats and lizard

What we heard on the trail: German, Dutch, Italian, French, Hebrew, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Irish, Australian and Canadian.

What we learned: Every step you take down the path takes you 1000 years back in time. By the time you get down to the very bottom, you're six hundred million years in the past.
