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 The Grand Canyon / for the love of nikeThe Grand Canyon / for the love of nikeThe Grand Canyon / for the love of nikeThe Grand Canyon / for the love of nikeThe Grand Canyon / for the love of nikeThe Grand Canyon / for the love of nikeWe 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.

  1. Wowwww. Great photos, but perhaps not difficult with that subject matter. Dunno why humans like to look at rocks, but count me in! Love the bird silhouetted in one of your pix.
