The Grand Canyon has to be seen and experienced, and cannot be described in words or pictures. This is what I had heard and read about this natural wonder. And it is very very true. The Grand Canyon is something we have all heard of, something we have seen pictures of – and even seen captured in documentaries, television shows or on Hollywood’s big canvas. So it is a known entity.
The Colorado River cut through the rock and formed a gorge that extends for miles. The area is desert like, and the rock is red, and so what you get is a magnificent canyon – yup I knew all that. But when you drive up to its rim and see it for the first time – it takes your breath away. You forget who you are, why you are on this planet, and who put you there. Everything else fades away when you are confronted with the magnitude of what lies before you. If nature did that, then nature is so much bigger than anything you ever knew!
