I climb the granite to its summit, and go away over rust colored sandstones and greenish yellow shales…I climb so high that the men and boats are lost in the black depths below, and the dashing river is a rippling brook; and still the there is more canyon above than below. All about me are interesting geological records. The book is open and I can read as I run.
As promised, here are some printable bookmarks featuring the Grand Canyon. Just click the preview image above to download the PDF file. Print on cardstock or regular paper and cut them out. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper, or not. Add a tassel and beads. Or not. Stick in books as needed.
Enjoy, and happy new year!
P.S. The quote is from the journals of John Wesley Powell, one fo the earliest non-native explorers of the Grand Canyon, dated August 18, 1869.
