Peering into the Canyon

When you visit the Grand Canyon, the contrast is between the approach which is through relatively flat land and the sudden edge or rim of the Canyon with it breathtaking vistas. But the Canyon is so large that first visitors do not appreciate the scale of what they are looking at. You see people dancing on the edge of thousand foot cliffs who have probably never stood next to a cliff before in their life. It is only after you hike to the bottom of the Canyon that you begin to appreciate the scale of what you see.
