Grand Canyon, Arizona.. No matter how much you read about the Grand Canyon or how many photographs you've seen, nothing really prepares you for the sight of it. One of the world's seven natural wonders, it's so startlingly familiar and iconic you can't take your eyes off it. The canyon's immensity, the sheer intensity of light and shadow at sunrise or sunset, even its very age, scream for superlatives.
Grand Canyon view from the top. When I was young-er, I hiked to the bottom. Then I bought a yellow t-shirt that said "Go hike the canyon" with a hiking boot pictured on it. I wore that shirt until it was just threads.
