Here's a Picture of Me at the Grand Canyon

Awe inspiring, isn't it?

No, really, the Grand Canyon was astonishing. I had serious butterflies doing laps in my stomach when we walked along the North Rim (as opposed to silly butterflies, I suppose). Pictures don't begin to do that hole justice, but here are a couple of them anyway.

The statistics, as I remember them, are that this canyon is 10 miles wide, 277 miles long and a mile deep. Whew. The picture above is a little hazy, but the mountains in the distance are about 25 miles away.

We didn't spend much time here, but I would like to go back someday and do some exploring.

Our three-week holiday was good, and we are thankful. I am planning to do some blogging this summer. I know I have been away for a long time, but I've built up some things to write about and the summer schedule is less hectic.

I looke for but was surprised not to find this quote from Piper:
"No one goes to the Grand Canyon to enhance his self esteem".
