The Grand Canyon was one of the first National parks in America, initiated by "Teddy" Roosevelt. In the picture above you can barely see the specs of those two people to the left, and understand the grandeur of it. Amazingly in all my travels, I have never been to The Grand Canyon. Someday soon, I will get to see it and there will be tears in my eyes over the sheer volume and beauty of it all.
