20 May Snapshot of the Week: The Grand Canyon
To some, the Grand Canyon is simply a “hole in the ground.” To others, it’s one of the most magnificant spots on the planet. (And, rightly so.)
However, I think to truly appreciate the splendor of this water-carved canyon, you need to get up close and personal with it. Hike to the bottom, go rafting on the Colorado… do more than the cursory glance and you’ll be rewarded with spectacular scenery and a jaw-dropping view.

|“Blink and you’ll miss it” wildlife|
|Every half mile or so, the flora and fauna completely change. It’s so steep that you’re always seeing something new.|
|The night sky at the bottom of the canyon is so clear… it’s amazing.|
|If you plan far enough in advance, you too can stay at Phantom Ranch!|
