What comes to mind when you hear the phrase — the American West?
Cowboys? Mountains? Buffalo?
Are you drawn to the scenery in classic western movies? Or do you think of switchback roads climbing a mountain?
Do you ever think of canyons?
No photograph, or puzzle based on a photograph, will be able to capture the majesty and grander of this canyon. The size-measured in miles. The colors of the different strata. The shapes of individual rocks and formations. A person needs to look with care and intent to see the river winding along the bottom.
Have you visited? Do you have it on you “to do” list?
