Grand Canyon #100years 1919-2019

Grand Canyon haiku

 

No wall made of brick
Stands between me and the edge
Acrophobia

Today’s #haikuchallenge word is brick and I’m still enjoying the photos from our trip – and also my acrophobia. This month between the seats we had for the concert and then going to the Grand Canyon, I’ve been having so much fun. I kept my distance from the edge most times. When we took the family photo Shawn held my shoulder and I had a death grip on Gretchen. Still everyone commented on how much I was shaking.

Grand Canyon July 2010

National parks will
celebrate centennial
discover nature

NaPoWriMo Prompt – Today’s prompt comes to us from Gloria Gonsalves, who also suggested our prompt for Day Seven. Today, Gloria challenges us all to write a poem in honor of Earth Day. This could be about your own backyard, a national park, or anything from a maple tree to a humpback whale. Happy writing!

Happy Earth Day, everyone! Did you know the national parks (US) are celebrating 100 years this year? Rather apropos Rachael will be visiting Glacier National Park in July. The Grand Canyon is in our backyard. Okay it’s a 4 hour drive to the north, but close enough. Still we haven’t been there since 2010 and my mother-in-law has never seen it. Maybe we can arrange a weekend this summer to go again.
