Feeling True Nature in the Grand Canyon

It was huge, wild, and untouched. I was shocked because I felt threatened by nature.

Most people who have traveled in the U.S.A. recommended that I visit the Grand Canyon. I saw many pictures and TV ads showing the Grand Canyon, but I didn't have any expectation before I visited it.

I went to Las Vegas in April which is a good time to visit because the weather isn't too hot or too cold. It took almost 4 hours to get from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. I could see the Hoover Dam and some desert on the way there.

When I arrived at one of the points of the Grand Canyon, I was surprised and puzzled because the scenery was very different from my thoughts. It was huge, wild, and untouched. I was shocked because I felt threatened by nature.

If you visit the Grand Canyon, you can feel the real nature without any artificial thing. My husband, who is Christian, said he felt the existence of God there. In a word, the huge scenery was indescribable, but I can say that it was a good opportunity to think about why we have to preserve our own nature. I recommend the Grand Canyon if you want to visit nature far from human society.
