What a breathtaking view this is. And yes 'a river runs through it'..... can you imagine millions of years ago how this would have been a 'wild river to run through'...
Fabulous pictures.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is hard to imagine the time it's taken to carve this canyon! Amazing isn't it!
Thank you, Astrid!

These are really grand pictures. This thing is so deep it isn't often possible to see the river running through it
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Chris! There are only a few spots we've found where we can actually see the water!

I like the deep green of the snake like river.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's always that color... full of sediment and algae! smile

It still staggers me every time I think about how the river has created such awe-inspiring scenery. I have a very similar image to your secondary image smile
