The Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon was another major stop of our trip. There's just no description for it. It was truly amazing. Pictures don't begin to capture the depth and texture, but here are a few to try.
Do you see the guy in blue? He is standing way out on a small cliff. I'm not sure what he was thinking, but I thought I'd take his final picture. He didn't fall though - at least not while we were standing there.

The guy in this picture (who looks familiar) was a little more careful than Blue Guy, despite how it appears here.

Leave it as it is. You can not improve on it. The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it. - Teddy Roosevelt

When my family and I lived in Arizona, we drove - five hours - to the Grand Canyon during the Thanksgiving holiday. It'd been 80+ degrees when we left and by the time we got up there, it as snowing. We couldn't see a thing in the Canyon due to the snow and fog.

When we went as kids, I tended to sleep for a majority of the time the car was in motion. My brothers told my mom to just let me sleep when we arrived at the Grand Canyon. She didn't. I'm glad she didn't.

IS THIS REALLY THE GRAND CANYON? I will need to see more pictures! Just in case you don't remember - I think any big hole in the ground is the grand canyon... Very cool!
