A Sleeping Beast
The Grand Canyon is pristine, breathtaking, awe inspiring, and most definitely a true wonder to this world. At nearly a vertical mile drop in elevation, the Colorado river snakes through the Canyon, carrying rafters and immense beauty. It lulls you with unlimited horizons and jaw dropping views, until it wakes. The grandeur remains throughout the unrelenting heat, throughout the brutal pack trip. It endures from top to bottom, and back up again. It has not claimed another victim. It rests, so peaceful, so serene, until we meet again.
