Grand Canyon

We went toward the 'large hole' in the ground and could not not believe it. I think, nobody can grasp the size of that canyon with the first look. We had a great sunset and a phenomenal sunrise (for which I had to throw Michael out of bed at 5 a.m. - that wasn't easy).

It is simply overwhelming (no weaker term would be sufficient) when the sun emerges slowly and wraps one part of the Canyon after the other one into bright yellow light. As if those rocks would be lit from the inside then be switched off. Amazing.
