In my opinion, the best history books on earth are earth. The Grand Canyon is a perfect example of that. It dates back 5 or 6 million years. I have to be honest, that is hard to wrap my mind around that amount of time. But, for some reason, when you’re standing out there on the edge, staring down into the guts of our little planet, you’ll get the gist of those mega-annums. Layer after layer of rocky-goodness, a feast for the eyes We only spent a day at the Grand Canyon. For me, this was more than enough time. After hiking the edge, overlooking the Bright Angel Trail, and venturing down the winding slopes along the South Kaibab Trail, I was quite content.
On another note, don’t get too close to any wildlife. These photos were taken before I saw a sign warning that Grand Canyon squirrels carry The Black Plague. Who knew that was still a thing?!
Earth, you really do rock.
