Happy Birthday GC

Postby Rambler » Feb Sat 27, 2021 8:50 am

Yesterday was the 102nd birthday of Grand Canyon National Park.

Teddy Roosevelt made it a National Monument in 1908. He said: "The Grand Canyon fills me with awe. It is beyond comparison—beyond description; absolutely unparalleled through-out the wide world... Let this great wonder of nature remain as it now is. Do nothing to mar its grandeur, sublimity and loveliness. You cannot improve on it. But what you can do is to keep it for your children, your children's children, and all who come after you, as the one great sight which every American should see."

Congress passed the Grand Canyon Nation Park law in 1919 giving it greater protection from mining, grazing, lumbering and other extractive activities.

In honor of its birthday here are a few photos I've taken.

Beautiful country. Haven't been for many years, need to make a trip and maybe even drag the old lady along.

Nice photos. I've traveled a decent amount in my life, but I've never seen the Grand Canyon. I'll have to get out there someday. Looks incredible.
