Grand Canyon 2004 (Part deux)

July 12

OK, I should have realized there would be more photos of Grand Canyon 2004.  Apologies.  But what I have deducted from finding ‘Part deux’ is that these photos are from film – Kodachrome 25, to be exact.  A film so popular that Paul Simon wrote a song about it.  I recall that because with the printed photos of the era, you would get a CD of those photos as part of the developing process –  and the most standard roll came with 24 exposures. And from other CD’s of the time I now recall this part of a ‘big ass’ driving tour of the American West.  (A member of the Fat Boys Walking Club recently had a couple of medical appointments.  When asked how they went, he replied he had CRS.  Requesting an interpretation, he replied ‘Can’t Remember Shit.’) . . .

In fact, just about all the major natural attractions you find in the West – the Grand Canyon, the Badlands, the Goodlands, the Mediocrelands, the Rocky Mountains and Robert Redford – were caused by erosion.  ~  Dave Barry
