Standing at the Grand Canyon’s south rim this evening at sunset, I saw a woman walk up clutching her luggage, spellbound. “Oh my God,” she said. The look on her face said everything.
She was seeing it for the first time. She’d come to celebrate an “important birthday”, and said she wanted to spend it with something older than she was.
I’ve been here many times, and I still choke up at my first fresh glimpse of the canyon.
It is important to be humbled in this life. IMHO there are few better places to be humbled than the Grand Canyon. And I’ve traveled a lot. Thank you John.
The Grand Canyon was always one of those places I figured was futile to try and photograph. The pictures could never really take in the scale or beauty of it all. You’re coming pretty close here though!
