AZ Big Nature #3: Grand Canyon

It isn't possible to capture the Grand Canyon in a photo. It's so big, so deep, so overwhelming. It's quite frightening, really. Have I mentioned that I have a fear of edges? Not really heights, but edges. Nothing is more terrifying to me than walking along a jetty without a handrail. The Grand Canyon is one big edge.

It covers a million acres of land. It's billions of years old, carved by water and wind. There's nothing else like it.

And I confronted my fear. It didn't make it go away, but I felt a little stronger.
