The Grand Canyon! September 4, 2009

Is there really anything left that can be said about the Grand Canyon? Hasn’t every adjective possible been used by now… gorgeous, breathtaking, stupendous, beautiful, amazing, freaking insane, epic, gnarly, wow, holy shit, awe inspiring…. so, really what’s left?

One of my favorite quotes of all time is by our 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt in 1903:

Roosevelt Point, North Rim - Grand Canyon

Roosevelt Point

 

“In the Grand Canyon, Arizona has a natural wonder which so far as I know, is in kind absolutely unparalleled throughout the rest of the world… LEAVE IT AS IT IS. YOU CAN NOT IMPROVE ON IT. THE AGES HAVE BEEN AT WORK ON IT, AND MAN CAN ONLY MAR IT. What you can do is to keep it for your children, your children’s children and for all who come after you.”

I think Mr. Roosevelt covered all of the bases in his quote… what do you think?
