Inner Canyon View

This is an early morning view from Cape Royal on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.   The ridges in this image are more than 7000 feet tall.   Cape Royal is nearly 1000 feet taller, providing a commanding view over the surrounding canyon.

It is an awe inspiring view where one can easily be caught up in thoughts about time and history.   The layers of sandstone eroded away to form a canyon over millions of years.   Our life span is but a brief moment compared to the millennia that it took to create this astounding view.

Cape Royal is truly a spiritual place with a timeless quality.   It is easy to become captivated by this beautiful canyon.
