I’ve been living in Arizona since 1981. I suppose I should go see that old canyon one of these days. I hear it’s grand.
I remember that the first time I visited Arizona thirty five years ago, I saw the GC and Oak Creek Canyon. Because I could physically drive into and through Oak Creek and exit in beautiful Sedona, it was more inspiring.
The Grand Canyon from the rim is awesome, but it is just too immense to digest from a visit to the rim alone.
I have had hopes that before I get too old I can amend that impression by actually back packing into the big ditch and then obtain the full impression. I alway loved “The Man Who Walked Through Time”.
what are you waiting for? 27 years and you haven't seen it yet?
To really see the canyon in all it's glory, you need to hike to the bottom. You wont regret it!
