You have to wonder. What did the first people think when they saw it? The Grand Canyon. The immensity of the chasm, plunging more than a mile at its deepest. Rocks nearly two billion years old. The vastness of the sun-soaked plateaus. Are the outcrops really those colors? The Colorado River - responsible for all the beauty - carving a tenacious path through the middle. It's incredible. Almost indescribable. And it's only a third of the trip. Bryce and Zion are waiting. Each with its own profusion of breathtaking moments. And as you're biking and hiking, feel free to just wonder.
