Antique Travelog #2: The Grand Canyon + ATC Background Bonus

I love world travel as our theme, but it really isn't necessary to handle overseas airfare with all that flying time to and fro in order to see something truly exciting. The Grand Canyon is its own unique world, and there's nothing else like it on earth. Most people never get to see it in their lifetime. I am one of those who have yet to get around to such a journey. One of these days, maybe I'll make a point of going. :)

Anyway, I like this view, as it says so much about the American West of the very early 1900's. To Arizona, it must seem their greatest treasure, as it would boast quite a tourism economy for that territory.

I've heard visitors there may be seen almost suspended in wonder, awe, and mystification at the size of the place. This is one place I really could see taking kids on a winter vacation. But for right now, it's here for us to play with and create new mindscapes on. I may have to make an ATC based on this one. Doesn't it make a great background? Can't wait to get cracking on this one!
Happy Creativity!
