Its beautiful tints were beyond the reach of human art. ~ 19th Century Painter Thomas Moran
Grandiose, breathtaking, awe-inspiring! These words came to mind when I visited the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. I loved the juxtaposition of the Upper and Lower Falls and multi-colored stone walls. For thousands of years, the chemistry of the rocks has been altered, causing them to rust. The resulting palette is spectacular pastel colors of yellow, red, pink and white. I am grateful to be here for a mere instant to experience this geological natural painting.
