Picture + 100 Words: A Sense of the Grand Canyon


It’s called a sense of place. Your description of a scene needs more than a string of superlatives or adjectives. This is difficult when describing the Grand Canyon. Perhaps you imagine, like I did, that you drive up to the Grand Canyon, look at it and go home. Instead you enter the park and at every point, every hike, every lookout the view changes, revealing new vistas. You gape at each scene, suddenly very interested in geology and rock formations. Then you realize you’ve only traveled 20 miles on just one rim and this canyon is larger than Delaware.

Note: For my 100th post on S.Y. Ciphers, I thought it fitting to do a 100 word photo post. Three years ago I started the Picture + 100 Words series where I share a photo and write 100 words or fewer about it. Thanks for reading, liking and commenting on the blog. Here’s to the next 100 posts!
