Grand Canyon

Somehow "Grand" does not tell how incomprehensible this canyon is. Most people use such words as "marvelous," "stupendous," or "fantastic," but no word is really adequate to describe this amazing creation of nature. The scene continually changes as light plays off the rocks and clouds, creating shadows and contrasts. The world seems larger here with sunrises, sunsets, and storms taking on an added dimension to match the landscape. The permutations are unceasing, and the moods are without end. This is a land to humble the soul.
