This summer, a friend and I undertook the “grandest” adventure of our lives. We went over to see the Grand Canyon in Arizona state, USA.
One of the world’s natural wonders, the Grand Canyon has been around for millions of years. 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and a mile deep, the Canyon is also home to some wildlife, comprising mostly wild horses, elks, bobcats and squirrels.
Looking at the arid Arizona landscape (with its characteristic Saguaro cactus), one is reminded of the several cowboy western movies that have been shot here. It’s hard to believe that the entire state was once under water! Nevertheless, it’s known today as the wettest and greenest desert in the world.
Undoubtedly a memorable trip, one in which I made met many friends (old and new) along the way – and one that I’ll surely cherish for years to come!
