I’ve visited the Grand Canyon several times in my life so that initial “wow factor” of looking across the expanse to the North Rim or peering down at the stark cliffs is gone.

However, views like this, from a cool Spring morning two weeks ago when I visited with my sister and her kids, never fail to thrill and bring a sense of wonder.

Face it Michael Bay… nature is always more amazing than special effects. :-)
