How do you react to one of the natural wonders of the world?
This is what my mom and I looked like:
Upon first glance of the Grand Canyon, my heart leaped right up in my throat.
The canyon is so immense.
We were up so high.
We were glad there were railings! Look how far away from the railings we first stood.
Even my first pictures were taken farther away from the edge, or I can’t remember if my kids took these pictures.
Can you see the river at the bottom of the canyon? This is the oldest part of the canyon.
My eight year old daughter took this picture below. I love the view of the tree’s shadow. It’s incredible seeing the Grand Canyon through another photographer’s points of view.
It’s impossible to take a bad picture there!
Seeing the Grand Canyon is a powerful, moving, and spiritual experience. How blessed are we to have such wonders in our world!
More pictures and stories from our adventures to come.
I remember feeling the exact same way when I saw the Grand Canyon. It is truly awesome! I’m glad you had the opportunity for a great family trip there.
Thanks, Kerry! Yes, it was really wonderful to all experience the Grand Canyon together!
What an amazing experience, and with both your mom and your kids. I’ve traveled quite a bit but have never sen the Grand Canyon. Your gorgeous pics make me realize, again, that I really need to see it for myself.
It was awesome! We had been to Arizona before, but never the Grand Canyon. It was really special to experience with my parents, my fam, and my sister’s family (we had a group of 10). You should go!
