The sight was majestic. It almost didn’t look real! It is the Grand Canyon!

Starting off its life as a flat-layered rock, the impact the Colorado River had on our great landmark is remarkable and unexplainable. The Colorado River cut 277 miles of beautiful canyon! It started its process millions of years ago, and it’s still going on today.

Sunsplash is a water park that is fun for all ages. There are crazy, insane water slides—there are scary slides and steep ones and some that go really, really fast. You have to be 48 inches tall to ride any slide or to go into the wave pool without a life jacket.

I went on every slide because I was big enough. I spent hours at Sunsplash riding slides and having so much fun there!

There was an ice cream shop and boys could go in without a shirt or shoes on. I got a huge ice cream there. The wave pool made huge waves that are deep.
