Marvel the creator - Grand Canyon

I had heard the Grand Canyon was an inspiring natural wonder. It’s a must see among nature’s most impressive sights.

For some reason, I couldn’t quite wrap my mind around it. I believed what people had said–that it was magnificent and amazing. I knew the Grand Canyon had to be stunning. But it was hard to picture a giant hole in the ground changing my life.

I imagined it would be like a giant cereal bowl–deep, circular, and with minor remains of Fruity Pebbles scattered about.

When I was in high school, my family took a trip out west and I had the opportunity to get up close and personal with the Canyon itself.

That was the day I realized I would never become an FBI sketch artist. My mental renderings were way off from the verbal pictures others were trying (and valiantly) painting for me. I simply couldn’t envision anything like this wonder of the world.
