Standing the Tests of Time


This is a short series of my impressions of the Grand Canyon in our state of Arizona, visited on December 1st.
It's 277 miles (446 km) long, 4 to 18 miles (6.4 to 29 km) wide and over a mile (6000 feet/1.83 km) deep.

My 8-year-old grandson asked me where you stand to see the Grand Canyon.
So in case you wondered, this is where...one of them.

Notice the trunk of the juniper tree on the right.  It's at least 1000 years old,
twisted by time and the elements!

Oh Ginnie- you are back (the first sunday pleasure!)- a wonderful point of view with a beautiful lighting in a grandious wild landscape- I could stand there like the two persons and look down and look over.. and forget all the time and look back in mind to the beginnings of our earth (geology) and enjoy such a sublimity of nature (which might make us speechless!- but not today)
Ginnie Hart: I guess I was lucky that I had several images queued up, Philine. We all were speechless that day, weren't we. But now we're all back to "life as usual." smile
Well, I am almost the first one to comment today; Philine beat me to it.
Prachtige foto!
Ginnie Hart: It was such a mess on SC back then, Wim, but this is now. So glad. Thanks. smile

Oh, sorry, we have saturday today, but the sun is out, rather frosty, fresh air! I wish all a fine sunday (in many meanings)!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it was Saturday, Philine, but we were all mixed up those days, weren't we! smile

Thanks for this series Ginnie, I told you before how much i was enjoying them. That "7" is amazing isn't it.
Ginnie Hart: That "7" IS amazing, Brian, yes. Sure makes for interesting conversation and conjecture. smile
