Grand Seems Like Such an Inadequate Word

January 19, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I am grateful that I can see. Last February, I stood at the edge of this awesome wonder. No photograph, certainly none of mine, begins to show the scope of the Grand Canyon. It is immense. I wonder at the centuries that it took to create this. Geologists note that the rock exposed at the bottom is from billions of years ago. I find it challenging to comprehend. "Grand" seems such a small word for such a vast place.

And I am grateful that our nation has deemed it important to set aside portions of this country as national parks for the enjoyment of all. This visit last February was at the top of Judy's bucket list. She did skip the mule ride when she saw how icy the trail was.
