Journaling: We took a helicopter ride for a close-up look at the magnificent giant hole in the Arizona desert, so vast we couldn't believe what we were seeing! It was like every paint in the paint store had been applied to the rim of the canyon, with the Colorado River as the knife. Its environment was like no other, so breathtaking, as we experienced the wonders of the canyon! January 25, 2014 (on file tab)
