“The Grand Canyon,” proclaimed U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt in 1903, “fills me with awe. It is beyond comparison… the one great sight which every American should see.”
Well, it was not until now that I got to see the Grand Canyon. I only got a brief glimpse of it at Desert View on this early April afternoon, but it was well worth it. Unfortunately, when I arrived at the South Rim, there was rain, freezing rain, hail, and snow, making viewing the canyon impossible. One day I will go back and try to hike the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim. In the meantime, here are some photos.
