"Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is concern for the rights and property of others.  Without appreciation there is arrogance and evil.  Where there is gratitude, there is humility, as opposed to pride.  How magnificently we are blessed!" President Gordon B. Hinckley

How grateful we are for this beautiful world we have been given.

The Four Corners Monument Navajo Tribal Park marks the four points in the Southwestern United States where the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah meet.  It is the only point in the United States shared by four states.  The monument also marks the boundary between two Native American governments, the Navaho Nation and the Ute Mountain Tribe.

The Grand Canyon is a steep canyon carved by the Colorado River over the course of 17 million years ago and is located in the state of Arizona.  It is 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and attains a depth of over a mile.

Obviously words can't begin to describe the beauty of the south rim of the Grand Canyon, so we will simply let the pictures do the talking.
Feel free to ooh and ahhh when inspired to do so.

We arrived at the East entrance and proceeded to stop at Desert View, Navaho Point, Lipan Point, Grandview Point and Yaki Point before arriving at the Visitor's Center.
