Place of a Day. Magnificent Grand Canyon

It is a very rainy day outside here in Houston, Texas.  End of August is a peak of hurricane season, and this year didn’t disappoint: hurricane Harvey is in its full force, bringing rain, wind, storm and more rain.  It is suddenly very dark and gloomy outside. The plan for the next few days is watching movies, enjoying the rain from the comfort of the cozy apartment and, maybe, looking at the old pictures on the laptop and reminiscing about the beautiful places and good moments, spent out there.

Place of the day – majestic Grand Canyon, truly one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world.

Eight long and exhausting hours on a bus from Las-Vegas, multiple stops and few unnecessary changes of the route we made it to the Grand Canyon.

The view of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World did not disappoint. It is quite challenging to describe with words its true beauty, silent and almost dangerous.  This wonder of nature takes the breath away and fascinates. The Canyon spreads so far and I don’t think there is ever enough time to enjoy its spectacular beauty.
