It's pretty grand, I have to admit. While vacationing with Owen's family in St. George, we planned to go to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We originally planned to go on Saturday, but it ended up being totally rainy that day so we had to cancel our plans. Then in a moment of insanity, we decided to go on Sunday, even though we would be having to make a 7 hour drive back home afterwards. But come on - it's one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World! We had to go. And even though we got a speeding ticket on the way home (stupid Utah police officers - why don't you pull people over in parts of the state where people actually live!?!), I think it was pretty worth it! It was incredible to witness one of God's most beautiful, awe-inspiring creations, and I hope to go there again some day!
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”
