Big Canyon

From down in the Canyon, you get a real feel for how high the walls are.

The canyon today isn't really getting any deeper, yet it is getting wider. The cold winter freezes the rock wall and when the summer heat comes, it cracks the rock sending to the canyon floor.

They tell you this before they allow you to go to the edge up top. You will see in a later photo the risks people are taking.
