THE GRAND CANYON! Oh My God, what more can I say about this wonder of the world? Yes, one of the 7 Wonders of the World, if not the most wonderful of all!
Accolades throughout the ages; its size, its beauty, its magnificence, its eternity & it's to me a miracle! A miracle because only in this age, time & technology that we are able to experience it fully. Think of the airplane, the photographic equipment & the internet... only NOW can we all share in this miracle in a way no one could ever before! Aren't these all miracles?!?!?!
The wonder of life never cease to amaze me, but this one has to be one of the GREATEST, the MOST AWESOME & the MOST INCREDIBLE experience of my lifetime! I love it so much so that I've been back more than half a dozen of times!!! There is really no place like the Grand Canyon where the sheer impact of one's first view is so overwhelming that it is beyond belief!!!
"Lovely and majestic beyond the cunning of human thought, the mighty monuments rise to the sun as lightly as clouds that pass. And forever glorious & forever immutable, they must rebuke human pride with the vision of ultimate beauty, and fulfil earth's dream of rest after her work is done." --- Harriet Monroe, 1899.
Remember the first few scenes from "VERTICAL LIMIT"? Yeah, here it is! The excitement of being in MONUMENT VALLEY & seeing it with my own eyes amount to sheer pleasure!
A land of profound beauty & pride. The Navajo and unknown tribes before live with the land. The Valley has monuments, lots of them!
750 feet below ground (!!!), referred to as "The 8th Wonder of the World" & one of the 20 World Heritage sites in U.S., is a marvel sight; not only because of its size & dimension but because of the undying human spirit of exploration!
Found by a cowboy named Jim White in 1901 when electric lights were still not invented & elevators were non existent, his adventure of this amazing find lead us to a world of wonders, discovery & courage.
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK is the world's first national park. Grand Canyon is the national park which I'm most impressed with in the United States. Ever since the visits to Grand Canyon & the Canadian Rockies, I was hooked! This happened more than 5 years ago. It's strange... before this, I was only interested in city-hoppings. I have never had any inclination to visit the parks, let alone a national park. But the Grand Canyon changed all that.
