This shot of the #GrandCanyon
is actually from 1999. This was my very first view of it in person.
We had arrived via the south entrance from Flagstaff and immediately took the short walk from the visitor center to Mather Point.
I’m not sure how long I was standing there before I even took this shot, but I do remember others around me as stricken as I was. Most were speechless, but some managed to utter long drawn out woooooooooooooows.
I’ve been back just once since then, and have made many other images, but this old slide will always be very special.
Have you visited the Grand Canyon? Were you as dazzled on your first visit?
