Is the Grand Canyon on your Bucket List?

Is the Grand Canyon on your bucket list? 

Let’s go learn just a little bit more about Bucket Lists. 

Here’s the definition on Merriam Webster…“Bucket List”. It’s a noun. What is a bucket list? “It’s a list of things that one has not done before, but wants to do before dying.” 

And as it happens, there was a headline this past week that said, Country Music Breakout Mitchell Tenpenny To Perform at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Here’s just a quote out of that article, “On New Year’s Day, Mitchell partnered with People Magazine to announce Bucket List and film the songs’ music video in conjunction with the State of Arizona, crossing off a few of his Bucket List places to visit among them Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Lake Powell / Antelope Canyon. Those are some of my favorite places in the state of Arizona. Let’s listen to just a few seconds of Mitchell Tim Penny’s video bucket list that he filmed here.

So there you have it, Mitchell Tenpenny checked the Grand Canyon off of his Bucket List. And if you’d like to support Mitchell, I’ll put his link down below to this YouTube video of Bucket List and what he performed here in the State of Arizona. Also, if you want to support Mitchell, you can attend his concerts and I’ll put a link to that as well. But if you have any further questions or you’d like to know more about how you can check the Grand Canyon off your Bucket List, you can stop on over and see us at GrandCanyon.com where you can learn more about the Grand Canyon and we’ll look forward to seeing you there.

  1. Years ago we were traveling around the canyon and drove on a road ?? Not sure where but it began to narrow then said end of state maintained ,then turned to gravel and speed limit decreased quickly ! Before we knew it we were looking out over part of the canyon and proceeded to descend down the side of it…can you tell me where we might have been ??

    1. Nita,

      You have me thinking…I first immediately thought of the road down Peach Springs Wash into Diamond Creek where it daylights in the Grand Canyon at the very bottom…however, you’re descption of “looking out over part of the canyon and proceeded to descend down the side of it” especially “descend down the side of it” is really throwing me off! Here’s a Google Map link to this location: https://goo.gl/maps/Hunnhon6urd34ygC7

      I’m more tempted to say you were in Canyonlands near Island in the Sky where the Schaefer Canyon Road descends into Canyonlands might be what you were remembering. Like here in this Google Map: https://goo.gl/maps/zNVYm9tSbfHHHBkm7

      In Thelma and Louise, they actually use Canyonlands/Dead Horse Point area (I believe) and call it the Grand Canyon. Here is a YouTube video of that scene:
      Actually, I just watched it again…and it’s below Dead Horse Point…

      Anyways, the other place I immediately thought of was Toroweap…but again you don’t “descend down the side of it” unless you’re going down the Lava Trail. (Which is an experience until itself…been down it once and come up it twice…second time after canyoneering down Cove Canyon upstream from it.) I guess you do kind of descend down below the formation surrounding Toroweap, though. Here’s a Google Map of where it’s at: https://goo.gl/maps/3p7bSJwaZ9QV5w9u6

      And, then again, you could be thinking about the Moki Dugway down into Valley of the Gods too: https://goo.gl/maps/2ZEPmVqp3ea7fTrc7

      So, I’m trying to interpret what you might be remembering…and map it to the locations I know of in the area.

      Peach Springs Wash/Diamond Creek is the ONLY place you can drive down into the Grand Canyon on the Hualapai Reservation. It’s where many of the Whitewater Rafting companies pull their equipment out after taking passengers through the Grand Canyon.

      Anyways, I’d be curious if any of those resonate with your memory!
