The Grand Canyon

I have some hesitation in trying to describe the Grand Canyon. The scale of it is just so far above and beyond that of day-to-day experience that words are inadequate to describe this unique wonder. I am speechless. The pictures do a much better job, but they also present only a small fragment of the whole.

This is my second visit here to the South Rim. I noticed a new Visitor Center, built to withstand visitors numbering in the thousands. Even at the end of March, the number of visitors seemed already quite high.

We stayed one night in the town of Tusayan, which seems to serve only one purpose, to be the bedroom town for the Canyon. Leaving here, our next destination is the Hopi Reservation.
