I have looked at pictures of the Grand Canyon for years and always thought they looked pretty cool, but didn’t really move me much. A few years ago some friends asked me if I wanted to go to the Grand Canyon with them on a vacation trip. I almost didn’t go, because I didn’t think it was that big of a deal. I am so glad that I changed my mind and decided to go. If you haven’t been there yet, the first time you walk up to the rim it will literally take your breath away. It was absolutely amazing and awe inspiring. You cannot get even close to a real perception of how expansive and how deep it really is. In the last photo, that thin blueish crooked line is actually a pretty good sized river (loaded with some incredible rapids). We spent several days on the south rim, most of it near Bright Angel area. There is also much more than the canyon to see and take photos of. The wildlife is plentiful and varied. One sunny morning I was bent down taking a macro shot of a prickly pear cactus when my subject was darkened by a shadow. I initially thought it was a jogger or walker that had walked up and was watching to see what I was doing. I was quite shocked when I looked behind me and it was a full grown bull moose! Luckily he was in a good mood and just walked away. If you get a chance, you owe it to yourself to do it. It is one of the wonders of the world.
