Yesterday was the first time I went to the entrance station on my job this season. It was exceptionally lovely out there due to all the rain we have received this year.I stayed out there until lunch time, then drove home to eat. On the way I stopped to “smell the flowers”, or at least to take some pictures of them.
After lunch I drove up to Walhalla Overlook to attend Gaelyn’s Interpretive talk. It was about the history of the people who have lived in the area, and was very interesting.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have this scene as the backdrop for your job every day?
After the history talk was concluded, Gaelyn and I headed up to Cape Royal for her 3:00 talk. This time she talked about geology, and how the Grand Canyon was formed. Very interesting, but I still can’t get my head around how it happened. I’m just glad it did. This place is awesome even after five years of working here.
Look how tiny those people look over there. That gives you some little bit of perspective on the size of the rocks and canyon walls.
It’s days like this one on the job that just go by way too fast. All too soon it was time to go home for the day. At least there is tomorrow for another view of this fabulous canyon!
