NFB Travel & Tourism Division – Fundraiser Trip to Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon & Zion National Park

This sounds like a fabulous trip, and they’ve made sure it’s accessible to B/VI travelers.  My parents took a trip to these canyons a few years ago, and they sound absolutely breathtaking.  If you’re looking for a fun vacation to see some of our natural wonders, this sounds like a great way to go.
