The Grand Canyon - one of the seven natural wonders of the world. It is: vast, enormous, overwelming, beautiful, stunning, amazing. You can stand at the edge and take in the vastness and realize just what a small part of the earth you are. Millions of people visit the Grand Canyon each year and some 500+ people have lost their live here. I think everyone should visit and experience the Grand Canyon during their life.
Picture taken somewhere along the road to Hermit's Point, at one of the many scenic points. A fellow tourist was kind enough to take this picture of our family.
This mysteriuos looking picture taken somewhere along the South Kaibab Trail as I hiked down to Cedar Ridge early one morning. It was a great hike (3 miles round trip) and I would highly recommend it. This trail is one of the two main paths to the bottom (Colorado River is 6.5 miles).
I enjoyed the South Kaibab Trail more than the Bright Angel Trail.
Katie and Kelly pause for a photo on their way down the Bright Angel Trail. We hiked down 1.5 miles to the first resthouse where we used the bathroom, refilled our water bottles and took a couple pictures. This trial is very popular and drops about 1,100+ feet in the first 1.5 miles. This trail is one of the two main paths to the bottom.
Picture taken somewhere along the road to Hermit's Point, at one of the many scenic points where you can actually see a portion of the mighty Colorado River. The river averages about 300 feet wide, or 100 yards (roughly the length of a football field!).
