Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand


Just recently there was a news article about a very large boulder at one of our national parks that a couple of boy scouts leveraged with the aid of a pole toppled the rock from were is sat for millions of years.

Having worked for the Army Corp of Engineers for a couple of years, one of the things you are not to do is deface government property.

Which brings me back to this photograph. This rock has probably been setting here in the Grand Canyon for millions of years.

I’ve had the enjoyment of visiting the Grand Canyon a couple of times and each time it takes my breath away. It is so amazing, deep and beautiful with all the rock formations.   I could probably go back there several more times and feel the same way. Sometimes you you see something and you can never get enough of it.

If you have been following my blog , then you probably know that we have been motor homing in our RV’s for several years. We bought a house back in January this year and this will be our first Christmas in this house.  Our son, his wife and our grand daughter came up on Nov 23, 2013. Our grand daughter wanted to decorate a Christmas Tree for us. WE went into town and bought a tree. From the time she got here almost until she left she slept. It seems that she had been on a field trip to Washington DC with kids from her school for a few days and did some late nights. That’s okay at least she came to see us or was it we saw her catching some ZZZZ.  We love her any way.

Our Daughter-in law decorated the tree. Don’t you think she did a great job?  She decorated the tree while our son and I cut fire wood, He did most of the work.

Merry Christmas to all and Happy Holidays.

    • I can’t tell you how excited I am when I go the Grand Canyon. Each time I go I look for a different angle to shoot from. Thank you for leaving me a comment.
