When you say 18 miles away, Frank, it helps you understand just how HUGE this place is. It truly is one of the world's wonders! I'm so glad yo got to experience it, more than even I have!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ginnie,it is a wonder of nature,we were there again yesterday,and had a great time,we also saw some of the little Colorado gorge,that is stunning.
Fine shot, Frank - I remember thinking that the Canyon was just too enormous to comprehend!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom,it is,we went there on Sunday,and I couldn't believe how long it took to drive along the South rim to here.
