A Wonder of the World, Maybe

January 21, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Stand before the Grand Canyon and try complaining. If you're like me, nothing comes to mind because looking at something so naturally remarkable (and, well, grand) makes you feel small, and your problems even smaller. 

That's what I love about being outside. I am always finding something magnificent. And how can you possibly think about being behind on laundry or your low credit score when you are witnessing a 17 million year old geologic process?

Moral of this post: Get outside. Go explore. Feel small. 

Fun fact: The Grand Canyon spans 277 miles long, 18 miles across, and 1 mile deep.

To Ponder: Do you know the seven wonders of the world? While driving to the Grand Canyon my friend and I realized we could only name a few. We thought the Grand Canyon might be one until we looked on Wikipedia.
