The Grand Canyon

September 18, 2016 Paul Groves

I’ve been to the Grand Canyon before, in 1982! The Canyon has not changed, but my hiking abilities have. I stayed up along the rim this time. We visited The Watchtower, which was designed as a Harvey House rest stop, serving tea for those visitors on a Harvey Tour. The architect, Mary Colter, worked hard to make the building appear old and belonging to the surroundings. The inside was being renovated, so we could only look in through the window. The large circular painting was by the Navajo artist, Michael Kabotie, representing the story of the Snake Dance, important because it was the ritual that brought the rains.
