Tell it Color, Day 10 — Earth

A couple of years ago we took a helicopter ride into the Grand Canyon.  Talk about Earth’s majesty.  My pictures don’t do it justice but it was very impressive. 

In the midst of the dirt and rocks a cactus grows.

We are at a picnic lunch in the Grand Canyon.  He is my rock.   Almost looks like we are sitting in front of a painting huh? 

These are the hills in Nevada on the way home from Reno.  I love the different colors.  
My quiet little bit of peace on earth. 
From our rental at Boulder Creek last year.  Such a nice place to sit and be one with nature.  

My journal entry for today:

What speaks of the earth to you?  Ever been to the Grand Canyon?  Got a favorite spot to read and commune with nature?  Share!

  2. Janet,

    I hope someday, we can visit the rugged mountains of the west. The landscape is so different on that side of the country. What great memories you have which live on forever in your scrapbooking projects!

      Thanks, Cathy. I hope to get around the country and see the differences someday. I am working toward being able to travel more even though our plans of taking an RV around the states to see the different baseball stadiums is probably not going to happen given my husband’s health issues. Meanwhile, I appreciate the views that others share of their part of the world.

    Np pictures ever do such majesty justice, but these are good anyway ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m a believer that everyone should go, I think it’s a momentous experience. It’s funny how you say it’s like y’all were superimposed over it, it does kind of look that way, because of the colors.

  4. Lovely pictures and it sounds like you did it right. I saw it a few years back.

  5. I am currently in Williams, just outside the Grand Canyon and have 6 inches of snow. We were at the South Rim Visitor’s Center last Saturday–it was Mike’s first time seeing it. We are planning to drive there today to see snow in the canyon. We drove around beyond the south rim and found a little roadside park with a more spectacular view and fewer people. We are also planning to do the helicopter ride with lunch into the canyon out of Las Vegas (it was our agreed upon anniversary gift to one another), which is our next stop after Sedona. I will never tire of the beauty of the Canyon–such majesty. I love your photos!

    I’ve been to the Grand Canyon and it was a hectic tourist trap experience. Your visit looks much more inspiring.

      Yes, Ally. Fly in on a helicopter, have a champagne picnic on the ledge and then fly out again and do a buzz of the hotels on the Vegas strip. There were 2 other couples in our helicopter and a couple of other helicopters landed while we were there but basically there were only about 10 or 15 other people. No crowds except in the airport waiting for the helicopters, but that was very well organized.

  7. Never been to the Grand Canyon. I focus on our own New Forest
