John Wesley Powell, a great explorer who mapped the Canyon in the 1800’s explained that, “You cannot see the Grand Canyon in one view, as if it were a changeless spectacle from which a curtain might be lifted, but to see it you have to toil. . .through its labyrinths.”
Of course in Powell’s day, photographs from space were a thing of science fiction. Though, his words still ring true. To truly experience it, you must visit.
As Jack Schmitt put it, “It’s like trying to describe what you feel when you’re standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon or remembering your first love or the birth of your child. You have to be there to really know what it’s like.”
Even more poetically, August Fruge once noted, “When your spirit cries for peace, come to a world of canyons deep in an old land; feel the exultation of high plateaus, the strength of moving water, the simplicity of sand and grass, and the silence of growth.”
