Das muss das Paradies sein (This must be Paradise)

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Ruth Frye

When we took our young German friends to the Grand Canyon we were amazed that they knew about the evolution of the squirrels on the north and south sides of the canyon because of learning it in biology class. They were awed by one scene after another, but the last scene overcame them. This photo of them drinking in all the magnificence they could get will always be one of our favorites of them.

Location: Grand Canyon Natl. Pk
