Carved by the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon is 277 miles long and 6,093 feet deep. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson signed the law that established Grand Canyon National Park as the seventeenth national park in the country.
I've been back since the first visit, and of course the Grand Canyon was still spectacular. The only drawback is that I'm afraid of heights, and my palms sweat the whole time I'm anywhere near the edge. There's no chance of me falling in while trying to take a selfie!
Beautiful! I can't believe I've never been there. Like you, heights would be a problem for me, but it's definitely something I need to see.ReplyDelete
Well, I haven't been to New Zealand, so we're even ;-) (Actually, you're way ahead.)Delete
We went there when I was in high school. I don't think I appreciated it as much as I would now.ReplyDelete
Haha! Do high schoolers ever?Delete
I have been there. Many, many, many years ago. It's one of those places that photos never do justice - they really can't give you that sense of scale that being there in person does.ReplyDelete
It's true. Someday, I would like to see it from the bottom, looking up.Delete
