All of my life, I wanted to go and see the Grand Canyon in Arizona.  From the time that I was a young girl and became informed that the Grand Canyon is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, I had to see it.  I remember begging and pleading to my parents to take a family vacation there, but they never did.  I, therefore, promised myself that I would definitely go to see it sometime before I died.

Ten years ago, I celebrated a milestone event in my life, and part of that celebration was to go see the Grand Canyon!  I’m so happy that I did!  There are not words to describe it, really.  It is just so awesome, amazing, breath-taking, incredible!  Truly, words such as “awesome” and “wow” cannot even begin to describe the amazing natural brilliance of this incredible world wonder.

Upon first viewing the Grand Canyon in all of it’s incredible wonder and splendor, my first thought was, “There truly is a God.”  I thought this because I believe there is no other being in existence that could have so beautifully-fashioned and molded this breath-taking world landmark.

One of my wishes, now, is to take my son to see the Grand Canyon some day.  Enjoying rocks, minerals, and the outdoors, I’m sure he would be a person who would also enjoy and marvel at this splendid natural wonder.

I can hardly believe that, already, 10 years have passed since I visited the Grand Canyon and revelled in it’s colorful and amazing brilliance.  The photos posted in my blog, therefore, are from July 2002.  The time goes by much too fast!

However, I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to see and enjoy the Grand Canyon at least once in my life.  Thank you, God, for creating such an amazing and incredible natural wonder!
