There is nothing that can prepare a person before seeing the Grand Canyon, especially for the first time. Words cannot describe it and photographs, no matter how dramatic with passing storms at sunset or sublime viewpoints, can ever do justice to the power and enormity of it. In fact, just as we do not fully comprehend the distances involved or the number of individual stars when we look at the sky at night, the same holds true when viewing the Grand Canyon. It is just beyond our ability to understand what we are seeing; it is just too far from the realm of normal for us to “compute”. And yet, even though I completely understood the futility of the attempt, I was still drawn to record it in some way.
