During a recent birthday bash with a group of local friends along the South Rim, the canyon served up one of the prettiest sunsets that any of us could recall. That was news given that, at seventeen years as a park resident, I was a virtual newcomer in this crowd of salty old hands. It was a true pleasure sharing this marvel with some of my favorite people – all rendered speechless yet again by this place we are blessed to call home. Enjoy.
