Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers

Grand Canyon, USA

When I saw the theme for this week’s photo challenge I immediately thought of my trip to the Grand Canyon. What an awe-inspiring testament to geological history. Some of the layers of sedimentary rock are nearly 2 billion years old!

We had a great day tour by bus from Las Vegas. The journey was long and at times very bumpy, but certainly more than worth it. I wish I’d known at the time that you could go hiking in the canyon, that must be an incredible experience! I’ll have to make sure I get to that next time round. For now I have my photos of the incredible vistas from the western rim.

Have you visited the Grand Canyon? How was your experience? Did you manage to take a hike?!
