Descent into Grand Canyon a journey back in time

Descent into Grand Canyon a journey back in time

The two main trails leading into Arizona’s Grand Canyon from the South Rim are gradual, wide and painstakingly well-constructed, with switchbacks to ease a descent of some 5,000 feet to the Colorado River.

I prayed for a multitude of things I don’t even remember, and I prayed for His presence.
