Admiring, Pondering, Traveling

The WONDERful Grand Canyon

We just got back from family vacation and I have to wonder why the Grand Canyon isn’t listed as one of the “wonders of the world”.  Seriously.  My first thought was, “I wonder what the people who first saw it thought?”  The thing that struck me was that there is no preamble.  You can’t see it in the distance.  A sparse forest leads up to it on the south and east rims, giving no hint that only feet away, the ground will drop away to majesty.  To be honest, it kind of snuck up on me.  Imagining early people on foot or in horses and buggies cutting through the woods, happening onto this scene…
