F.Y.I. I am taking part in the A to Z Challenge. For the entire month of April I am blogging, in alphabetical order, about a location I’ve visited, that begins with the letter of the day. Stop by tomorrow and check out what I think about the letter H.
Majestic beauty created over millions of years
Picturesque views from her South Rim: Arizona’s Grand Canyon
Dangerous depths that snares the foolhardy
That do not fear the sandstone edge: Arizona’s Grand Canyon
Inversion of clouds fills the massive ravine
A twist of nature; beauty surreal: Arizona’s Grand Canyon
Always changing, yet splendor the same
Plateaus, plains, desserts, forests: Arizona’s Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon's reputation as one of the great Natural Wonders of the world is well suited. Even after five trips to the majestic South Rim, it still amazes me. Every view picture perfect. Nature in your backyard. The best Eco-friendly in park transportation system on the West Coast.
Although the Grand Canyon, with it's dangerous cliffs and unstable sandstone edges, is known as the least user-friendly park; using common sense will keep you alive and allow you to enjoy the beauty as it's meant to be seen, on the approved trails. I've never hiked into the Grand Canyon, but her beauty from above is breathtaking. If you're not into hiking, don't worry, you can take a mule ride to the bottom, or ride the bus around the top, visit the beautiful El Tovar Hotel, Hopi House or get a birds eye view of the canyon from the Watchtower. If all that wears you out, you can find a seat along a trail and watch a magnificent sunset.
