It occurs to me that in my post yesterday I made no attempt to describe what I saw at the Grand Canyon. This is because I kind of can’t. Everyone knows what it looks like- from pictures and patriotic TV ads- a big layer cake of rock formations, with mules, but you get no sense of how huge it is. I mean, way down at the bottom, so much smaller than the main canyon that you barely notice it, there’s a series of canyons that would be considered pretty significant anywhere else. Like I said, I took lots of pictures, but I don’t think they’ll do a better job of showing it than this lousy description. So, I guess what I’m saying is, you’ve really got to see this place.
1 thought on “More Grand Canyon”
It’s Wednesday and I’m still in Kensington (not counting the many hours spent in Novato) but it hardly matches the Grand Canyon! Dad and I are missing you. He bought some cardoons–to fix them first you have to cut the strings off, cut them up and soak them in salt water overnight. Then you have to simmer them for 15 minutes, make up a fritter batter and deep fry them. The end result is a kind of weak artichoke taste. Not bad but not worth the effort. They sound much better in “Under the Tuscan sun”. Say hello to Melinne and Paul for me!
