Series on my trip to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) - NORTH AMERICA - Visiting LAS VEGAS, LAKE MEAD, HOOVER DAM, RED ROCK CANYON and the VALLEY OF FIRE (NEVADA), the GRAND CANYON - WEST AND SOUTH RIMS (ARIZONA), BRYCE CANYON, RED CANYON and ZION CANYON (UTAH), the DEATH VALLEY (CALIFORNIA) and finally CHICAGO (ILLINOIS) - From APRIL 05th to 24th, 2012 - # 125 !
LET'S FLY UP TO THE EDGES OF THE GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM! TAKE A LOOK AT THAT TINY BOAT DOWN THERE! AREN'T WE SMALL IN CONTRAST WITH THOSE CLIFFS!
Time to go back to the top by helicopter! Let's leave the place where we stayed for some enjoyable moments!
THERE'S A WORKSHOP VERSION, where one can see, in detail, the place where we took our boat rides on the COLORADO RIVER!
THERE'S ANOTHER WORKSHOP VERSION, where one can have another scene of us taking our boat ride on the COLORADO RIVER!
Some others have been already posted by me on TE!

As I truly didn't know it could me the one and only time over there, I decided to take the most complete tour over the Grand Canyon nearby Las Vegas!
First a van from Las Vegas to Boulder City. Second a flight from Boulder City to the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM. After that, a helicopter flight over that NATURAL WONDER, going down to the COLORADO RIVER! There, a boat ride! Then, a flight back to the edges of the Canyon to visit some places, such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk with some lunch served over there! Finally, all the way back to Las Vegas by plane and van again! It was certainly totally worthwhile and very enjoyable!

ce paysage est grandiose avec une belle vue plongeante, excellent ce détail avec ce bateau, cela donne encore plus une impression de'immensité avec ce bateau qui paraît si minuscule.

The boat add good scale to the impressive vastness of the canyon.

Impressive valley. I like this image that shows how little we are on this world.
Enjoy a good week.

Bonjour, cher Neyvan,
Image spectaculaire s'il en est ! Nous mesurons la petitesse de l'homme par rapport à la nature.
Difficile de détacher notre regard de cette composition.
Très bonne journée.

The boat is a definite plus, offering a good sense of scale. The airborne point of view is excellent. Superb rendering of the tones and textures in that massive rock face.

It seems like you had as great trip out west. I like this photo because it shows the large scale of the canyon compared to that tiny boat. We can also see the details, such as patterns in the rock, and sand collecting on part of the canyon. The Colorado River is very brown. :-) It matches all the other earthy colors.
