Kick 'in it at the Grand Canyon! I grew up in Arizona and it has been a joy to share the rugged beauty of the Arizona desert with my kiddos. While hiking down into the Canyon, it was disappointing to find pieces of trash left behind by other hikers. At the same time, I was reassured by the unimaginable immensity of the Grand Canyon, as if no amount of human inconsideration can diminish its grandeur. There is some vague comfort in knowing the Canyon has been here long before humans knew about it, and that it will continue to exist long after I depart this earth. Not that this means we shouldn't fight to protect it today! .
I also should give a shout out to the Grand Canyon national park for encouraging people to use their own refillable water bottles! #unfadingbeauty #grandcanyon #litterless #goplayoutside #zerowastearizona #grandcanyonnationalpark
