A Grand Panorama

One of natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon is visited by millions of people a year. Yet, what is it about this place that makes it so special? 

I took a trip to see what all the fuss was about and discovered a place where one can get back to nature and experience the spiritual connection of this great land.  The Hualapai people are the traditional owners of this land that includes 108 miles of the Colorado River that runs through the canyon.

The Hualapai means “people of the tall pines” and after years of tough times, the Hualapai Leaders made a decision to share the land as a new tourist destination.  Everyone could share the spiritual and historical significance of Grand Canyon West.

To experience this side of the Grand Canyon and not have hoards of people around you, take an early scenic flight.  The early morning is the best time to take in the panoramic vista of the rock formation shaped like an eagle. It truly does resemble an eagle and is known as Eagle Rock (not the song).  If you are lucky you may be able to catch a glimpse of this beautiful bird in the clear, blue sky.

Sit for a while on one of the many rocks at the Grand Canyon West lookout.  The only sounds are of nature and the occasional bird as you drink in the stillness of the canyon.

I was so inspired by the view that I filmed a short video that I would like to share with everyone.  Sit back and feel the peace and beauty at Eagle Rock.
