Grand Canyon

The last time I visited the Grand Canyon was June 2000. The temperatures were then reaching into the high 80s at the top and scorching well over 100°F at the bottom. This time around it was very different, as the top was covered in a layer of snow and only got into the 60s.

The view was just as spectacular as I remember it being over 20 years ago. To think that God likely formed all of it in just a few hours as the waters receded following the great world-wide flood of Noah’s day is amazing.

Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much. Who determined its dimensions and stretched out the surveying line?

I recently learned that there are four different kinds of frost, each with it’s own way it forms. They go by names such as radiation or hoarfrost, advection frost, window frost, and rime frost. I guess I had never considered that there was more than one kind. No matter what you want to call it, it’s absolutely beautiful against the bright blue sky.
