Grand Canyon Sweet

October 06, 2002

Rosemary McClure's article, "All Aboard for a Grand Canyon Getaway" (Weekend Escape, Sept. 22), caused me to marvel at our different perceptions. My friend and I had no complaints about the Grand Canyon Railway package we took in July.

Yes, the meals at Max & Thelma's Restaurant are heavier than most health-conscious people prefer, but we walked off the extra calories by heading into historic Williams on Route 66. The friendly rangers at the Visitors Center offered a walking tour map, and the high desert's balmy evenings were perfect for strolling.

When describing the canyon, McClure neglected to mention wildlife, especially that most majestic sight, soaring California condors. With their 9-foot wingspan, the condors put on an awe-inspiring show each afternoon at the South Rim.

Next time, the writer should forget about the food, leave the city behind, take a deep breath and open herself to the natural wonders of the Grand Canyon.
