abc wednesday - G is for "Grand Canyon"

I've never been here—this photo was taken by my daughter Lila,
who drove from Vegas with her sister Kate to be here at dawn
and capture the indescribable beauty of this place.

{BTW, Lila has her own daily photo (and only a photo) blog.}
[See others' interpretations here, at the ABC Wednesday meme.]

And here's how it looked when the
sun first peeked over the horizon.
All together now—ooooh!


  1. Wow, I have been there and it is just that beautiful. Wow.

  2. on my list of must go see is the Grand Canyon.

  3. Wow! What grandeur! You daughter was wise to get there before the sun came up.

  4. Great shot Lila!
    this is one place I do not want to wait much longer to go see.

  5. That is a great photo with the texture of the tree contrasting with the grand canyon. Amazing place.

  6. So pretty!!

    Please visit my first ABC entry, thank you and nice to meet you through ABC.

  7. I have seen it from the southern rim and it is just stunning... It just boggles the mind to see it.

    Thanks, Lila!


  8. what a pretty place :) have time to check my G entry, thanks

  9. Your daughter really caught the magnitude of that place. It is so worth seeing it in person. I'm glad I've had the chance.

  10. The Grand Canyon is indeed so Grand! I've been there a couple of times and each time was like the first. Amazing place. Great post and photo!
