A gallery showing impressions of a two day trip to what was perhaps the most impressive marvel of nature I have ever seen. I felt unable to portrait the sheer magnitude of this place in single images. It took about five millions years for the canyon to form, reminding the visitor of the humbling short span of a human life and humanities existence.
Below you see a gallery that portraits our journey. The first day was a road trip along the South Rim at various lookout points with small hikes in between. The second day was a 7 hour hike down the classic Bright Angel trail. Note that unlike mountain climbing, when hiking down a Canyon, that hardest part is getting home again.
