America the beautiful, Grand Canyon national park and Hoover Dam 

Wind rain water and time. Grand Canyon national park magnifies the Earth’s beauty. This year is the national park’s 100 year birthday. Some places we see once and it’s plenty, others need to be seen again and again with different friends or family to experience it.  Many years ago we took a Grand Canyon airplane tour and caught the majesty overhead, this time by car and via the park’s excellent free shuttle bus service, we were able to go rim to rim to catch it all, with the sunset as a perfect close. 

Next day stop over: Appreciating The collective smarts of civil engineers to control water wind and rain to harness power: Hoover Dam.
