We made it to the Grand Canyon!


After a very long day, at 6.30 pm yesterday we drove the Toledo back to Grand View Point at the Grand Canyon where it was first seen 112 years ago.

 

Tom Martin, who picked up our idea to try to run the original route back in May, not only became the facilitator and organiser of whole event but also the official photographer!  Have a look at Tom’s Facebook page for far better and in fact stunning photos of our progress.
