Canyon Tour 

We are off on a short visit to a few of the most beautiful natural sites in the world – The Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Park with Gate1 Travel.  We start our trip in Phoenix, Arizona, with a hike through the Desert Botanical Garden, 140 acres in Papagos Park, showcasing 21,000 plants, with 139 species which are rare or endangered. It has been designated as a Phoenix Source of Pride.  

The desert has its own kind of beauty….strange, dramatic, and prickly, yet flowering and beautiful, providing housing for many desert creatures and birds, and able to survive with a minimal amount of water.
