The Lamson Adventures!!!!
Grand Canyon, Arizona
The Grand Canyon (36.1N 112.1W) in Arizona took my breath way. We could not have planned it better arriving about 1 hour prior to sunset on the Canyon. We did not go to the newly famous glass platform. I did not really see how it could get better than where we where. I enjoyed that we were all lined up waiting with the tourist around the globe. All of us pushed up against the viewing bar, taking turns at the helm for pictures. The light breeze of the desert night made it just brisk enough to make the photos good. The only warning I would give is this town is sooooo expensive. I found the rooms and food way over priced. Mother nature made it but man is making a buck off everything to do with it.
The Grand Canyon is a steep-sided gorge carved by the Colorado River in the U.S. state of Arizona,and parts of Nevada. It is largely contained within the Grand Canyon National Park — one of the first national parks in the United States. President Theodore Roosevelt was a major proponent of preservation of the Grand Canyon area, and visited on numerous occasions to hunt and enjoy the scenery. We were sitting right on the southern rim. The canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, ranges in width from 4 to 18 miles (6.4 to 29 km) and attains a depth of more than a mile (1.6 km). Nearly two billion years of the Earth's history have been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut their channels through layer after layer of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted. The "canyon started from the west, then another formed from the east, and the two broke through and met as a single majestic rent in the earth some six million years ago.
