I have never been to the Grand Canyon. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. I took the opportunity the past couple days to fly to Phoenix to visit some friends who live up in Snowflake. The trip ended up being an almost 1000 miles round trip that took me all over the state of Arizona. In the next couple of blogs I will share some pictures and experiences.
The Grand Canyon of the Colorado River is the largest gorge in the world-a 290-mile-long gash across the face of the Colorado Plateau in northern Arizona. John Wesley Powell in 1869 became the first to traverse the canyon by river. He wrote, "You cannot see the Grand Canyon in one view, as if it were a changeless spectacle from which a curtain might be lifted." I think the same can be said of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the revelations we can recieve as the veil is lifted..
