11/04 Rim Trail from Powell Point to Hopi Point
Grand Canyon has not blown us away. In all honesty, it's so huge that seems like a painted movie backdrop. Unlike Dead Horse Point State Park, Arches, and even Canyonlands, we can't touch it, we can't even see much of it, and our photographs hardly have any impact. The biggest awareness I have of its VAAHSTNESS is that each gust of wind causes vibrations of sheer terror in my stomach as I try to anchor my ass as firmly as possible to the rock. As I hesitantly sneak a peak at the canyon below, it's only the closeness of the ledges underneath me that hint at the steepness and power that this canyon holds.
