When I walked to the edge of Mather’s Point and saw the valleys and peaks , the random greenery growing from steep ledges , and the vibrant reds and oranges of the canyon’s interior I could only think Wow. Here are a few more thoughts – and photos -from my visit to the Grand Canyon.
Thought #1: How does nature make so much beauty ?
Thought # 2: It must go on forever and ever and ever…
Thought # 3: Do not fall…Do not fall
Thought #4: I really hope those people don’t fall
Thought #5: If I do fall to my death ,it’ll be fine because I saw this with my own eyes.
Do you remember the first time you saw the Grand Canyon, either in person or through a photo? What was your first thought?
