Mish & Steve - Day 2

When I first laid my eyes upon the beauty of the Grand Canyon, chills ran up and down my arms. No lie.

It left me awe-struck by the power it represented in depth and expanse and by the beauty it enveloped in color, texture and amazing compostion. It was the most magnificent design project I've ever laid my eyes on, and it left me in total awe of the Designer. What is humanity that you are mindful of them?

These pictures partially represent the beauty, but the experience of standing on the edge of a rock over looking this magnificent formation is like no other.

It's creativity at its finest.






i think this puts "a picture is worth a thousand words" in context.






our sweet family and the canyon.










the lonley tree and the canyon.

Just the thought of the Grand Canyon makes me want to pee my pants.

All I could think was, "Great, there's my brother and sister, whom I adore, standing at the edge of the cliff wearing FLIP-FLOPS."

Darn our mother for passing on her fear of heights.

Thanks for writing! What a great adventure!

I was just thinking about the Jeff Ehrich joke about how the Grand Canyon was caused when Jeff got angry during construction and threw his hammer down in disgust.

And the result of that action is now known as the Grand Canyon.

I love it when people compare Jeff to Chuck Norris...

ALICIA!!! I THOUGHT YOU WERE WAY SOUTH IN AZ...DANG IT! I'M ANGRY THAT WE COULD'VE SEEN YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pamers, there were more levels we could walk on below us, but the flips probably weren't the best idea. :)

Brent, your comment made me LOL, not just typing it, I really laughed!!!!!

So why did my fear of heights have to be brought into this beautiful picture?? I agree...flipflops? But I'm so glad you got to experience the beauty of the canyon. Happy travels! Love you!
