The amazing thing about the Grand Canyon is not so much its vastness, instead it is that there are so many different facets to this cutting of stone that it takes on a different appearance with every change in light and perspective. From our perspective, we see the North Rim and the South Rim of the canyon simultaneously as they frame our view of the canyon. We follow the bright green ribbon of the Colorado River through the depths of the canyon that are unseen by our friends whose feet are tethered to the ground. On the South Rim, Hermit Basin and Yuma Point frame the focal point and provide us a reference as we wander up the canyon. From this vantage point we can see the topographical layering of multicolored fractal ridges that provide the color and sense of depth to the vistas seen from the rim.
