Twilight settles down over Glen Canyon as a warm breeze blows across the open space. Far below, the mighty Colorado River meanders around Horseshoe Bend. From the high cliff we sit on, the river’s personality is a smooth and peaceful reflection of our mood.
Such a pause of momentum will not last. For around the next corner awaits a different story. Here, the river awakens and its restless soul will soon be descending into white water rapids as it digs its way into the depths of Grand Canyon.
For now, the river is placid and a sacred darkness slowly extinguishes the fire of today, so tomorrow, a new day can be born into this circle of life. Endings and beginnings, forever inseparable. Glen Canyon, meet Grand Canyon. And old man river, you’re about to go for a ride!
