Arizona's Big Hole: The Grand Canyon

“What? We drove for hours just to see this big hole?”

This was purportedly said by one of my host’s kids when they went to the Grand Canyon before. Well, at the time, he was still young.

For me, the place was spectacular – God’s work at its best! It really deserves its place in the Seven Natural Wonders of the world. As I marveled at the fantastic gorges, I dawned on me just how small I was - just an infinitesimal speck in the vast sea of God’s wonderful creations.

I thought I have been accustomed to heights (remember, my favorite pastime is oggling at people from my 20th Floor workstation), but looking down the mile-deep fissures made me realize that my stomach has more to learn. I had to stay far from the edges (there were areas with no railings) to feel safe.

(P.S. Ako yung tumalon na blonde ang buhok sa second pic). He he.

" small I was - just an infinitesimal speck in the vast sea of God’s wonderful creations."

And you haven't even seen the Milky Way yet from a good vantage point.
