Some things are so large the human brain cannot fathom their existence. The Grand Canyon is no exception. It is so massive, it looks fake. Almost as if you are looking at a painting against the earth. Some sort of optical illusion… No wonder when Clark Griswold arrived he immediately left again.
Very few things can make you feel so small yet so at peace.
We met a guy today from Germany, again mesmerized by our bikes. He is also a BMW rider in Europe. We chatted with him for a bit and he took our picture for his records.
Sometimes it pays to take the road less traveled. We looked at the map and decided to take the ‘long way’ out to our hotel. The views we saw by going over an hour out of our way were absolutely amazing. Miles and miles of Canyon viewing without a single tourist in sight. After riding that way I felt cheated for having paid money at the Grand Canyon National Park. I felt bad for all of the other travelers who didn’t know what they were missing. It is truly amazing to be awestruck by God’s creation.
