Chapter 1: The Grand Canyon Adventure
There's day that you just want to do things out of impulse, and this is my story. My brother Tommy and I never been to the Grand Canyon before and we been living in Arizona for more than a decade. So we decided to book a trip to the Grand Canyon with my girlfriend. I drove most of the time, while they was sleeping. During our drive, there are so many breath taking views. The snow covering all the trees and the sky is the perfect shade of white to compliment the snow. Its almost look like a black and white photo. When we arrived, we didn't have to pay an entree fee due to the government shut down. Its was a blessing and a curse, its a blessing because we don't have to pay for the entree fee. But its a curse because there wasn't much activities either due to the shut down. Our first day there was quite relaxing, we check in to our lodge and rest for a while. While Tommy was looking for a club and a bar to attend. Little does he know we're on a Canyon and there's no such things. He was greatly disappointed. How do I know he was disappointed...? He constantly asking me "WHY ISN'T THERE ANYTHING TO DO HERE?!" Its was funny the first few times, but after a few more times its start to get a little repetitive ಠ_ಠ. Since there wasn't much to do we decided to watch television, and get some rest the next day.
Chapter 2: The Hike
Its morning, rise and shine beautiful beings! We ate some breakfast, and head to the bus stop. While we was waiting for the bus. I realize how ecstatic the bus stop was so I decided to take a photo of it. Thank god I took the photo in time because a few second after that, a storm of old Asian parents just photo bomb the unicorn out of my photos. Enough with my random rant ᕦ(ಥ_ಥ)ᕤ! The shuttle bus was very organize, so we know exactly where we want to go. So...shortly after breakfast...we decided to go to another restaurant like the little fat piggies that we are (´・ω・｀)/. I am not going to lie....the food was bomb as heaven. After the amazing feast we went on a hike. On the map the hike doesn't look like its was all that far. So we decided to walk...little do we know...we make a great mistake. No regret though its "ONLY" took us an hour to hike to the Geology Museum from El Tovar. During the process we get to see deer, caves and other cool things that the Grand Canyon have to offer. Let me tell you, these dear are freaking huge. To prove my point I am going to end my chapter here and show you the majestic dear that we saw.

Chapter 3: Sickness
My girlfriend have falling ill after the hike due to the insanely cold weather. She ended up staying at the lodge to rest. While me and my brother taking a trip up to Dessert View to see the watchtower. As we head up the hill there was a car that drive 25 mph on a 65 mph street. I am not a road rage type of person. But if you go that slow you're asking for people to cut you. I was quite patient for a good 2 minutes than I lost my shit and pull the Initial D drift on there ass and cut them（￣^￣）凸. Its took roughly 1 hour for us to get there, when the GPS state that it should only take 30 minutes. Funny story when we head back home we was behind the same damn car. Anyways when we got there its got significantly colder! I was able to take a few photos of the tower & the Colorado River. Its was too cold for my brother to handle so we headed back shortly afterward. We have some deep talk while we're driving back and I am glad that I get to spend time with him alone, since he's probably the only person that understand me the most beside my bestfriend (Kenneth) & my girlfriend ( Cheyenne). We have our differences none less we're still brother. I can always count on him and as for him he can always count on me. Enough of the bromance shit (ᅌ ˇ ᅌ)/, I am going to show you guys the photos that I was able to captured while I was up Dessert View.

Chapter 4: Goodbye Grand Canyon
After some crazy hike & amazing view! All good things must come to an end. As we pack up to go back home! We decided to visit my brother friends on our way back to Chandler. His friends are pretty amazing, all of us went a grab some good Japanese food. Afterward we decided to play some Mario Party game. My brother was knock out on the couch. He's a nurse that work during night time, his sleeping schedule is pretty mess up. I am so glad I was able to meet his friends they are amazing people and very kind as well. Until next time, we will be grinding hard to be able to afford another amazing trip to write about. Below are some of the photos that I took during our hike to Geology Museum from El Tovar Lodge.
