The greatest wonder of the natural world
1 When I arrived, it was early morning, and it was raining. I got out of the car, went through a gate and walked along a path. In the east, the sky was becoming light, but beside the path, it was still very dark. I knew it was there, but there was nothing to see. 2 After about a kilometre, a stranger appeared in front of me. “Am I going the right way?” I asked. He know where I was going.” Yes,”he replied, “You’ll get there in five minutes.” Finally, I came to some rocks, and stopped. I looked carefully over them, but it was still too dark to see anything.
The greatest wonder of the natural world
3 Suddenly, the clouds cleared and the rain stopped. The sun rose behind me and beyond the rocks. I saw that the ground fell away and down to a river, far below me. I was on the edge of the Grand Canyon, one of the wonders of the natural world. I looked down to the Colorado River about 2 kilometres below me. If you put the three tallest buildings in the world at the bottom of the canyon, they still won’t reach the top. Then I looked across to the other side of the canyon. How far is it? It’s 20 kilometres, maybe more. Finally, I looked to my left and to my right, and on both sides the canyon disappeared into the distance….over 400 kilometres long. The Grand Canyon is not just big. It’s huge!
The greatest wonder of the natural world 5 That morning on the edge of the canyon, I asked myself a question. It’s not “How deep is it?” or “How wide is it?” or “How long is it?” but “Is the Grand Canyon the greatest wonder anywhere in the natural world?” I know the answer. But what do you think?
