More Grand Canyon
It occurs to me that in my post yesterday I made no attempt to describe what I saw at the Grand Canyon. This is because I kind of can't. Everyone knows what it looks like- from pictures and patriotic TV ads- a big layer cake of rock formations, with mules, but you get no sense of how huge it is. I mean, way down at the bottom, so much smaller than the main canyon that you barely notice it, there's a series of canyons that would be considered pretty significant anywhere else. Like I said, I took lots of pictures, but I don't think they'll do a better job of showing it than this lousy description. So, I guess what I'm saying is, you've really got to see this place.
