Ain't It Grand, Ethel?
This canyon is a terrifying and beautiful place that is constantly eroding. I am not among those who feel up to hiking into the canyon itself, but along the rim are spectacular views. In particular, there is a view from the North Rim where one looks down upon the mighty Colorado at a bend where the Anasazi lived on a level area at the conflience of a creek and the river itself. It looked quite hospitable and fertile, unlike most of the other views.
