On this day in 1838, author and environmental philosopher, John Muir was born. Of Grand Canyon he said, "Other valleys of erosion are as great -- in all their dimensions some are greater -- but none of these produces an effect on the imagination at once so quick and profound, coming without study, given at a glance." Muir was perhaps America's most famous and influential naturalist. He was involved with the establishment of Grand Canyon National Park. (As well as Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, Petrified Forest National Park, and Mount Rainier National Park.) In 1902 he published an essay, "The Grand Canyon of the Colorado," in Century Magazine, from which this quote was taken. Because of Muir's influential writings and role in the creation of multiple parks, he is often called "The Father of Our National Park System."

A recent sunset as seen from Plateau Point, Grand Canyon National Park. Plateau Point is 1.5 miles ( 2.4 km ) on a spur trail - beyond Indian Garden (and Bright Angel Trail.) From Grand Canyon Village, this is a strenuous day hike that takes from 8-12 hours, and it should not be attempted during the hot summer months. The round trip from the rim is 12.2 miles ( 19.6 km ) The change in elevation is 3,195 feet ( 974 m ) NPS/Jake Frank, visiting from @yellowstonenps #GrandCanyon #Arizona #coloradoriver #hiking[Image description: Looking down onto a green river at the bottom of a gorge formed by steep cliffs.

#GrandCanyon #geologyThese highly metamorphosed rocks are found in Phantom Canyon, a few miles from Phantom Ranch. Called migmatites, they form under extreme metamorphic conditions that actually cause the rocks to start melting. Migmatites are an intermediate between igneous and metamorphic rocks. [Image description, a slick rock pour over in shades of gray and black appear to be melted together in swirling patterns .

Unlike mountain climbing It’s all uphill when returning on a canyon hike. Bright Angel Trail begins just west of Bright Angel Lodge and offers day hikes that range in distance up to 12 miles (round trip). Some shade. Seasonal water subject to pipeline breaks. Check at the Visitor Center or Backcountry Information Center for water status. Upper portion of the trail may be extremely icy in winter or early spring. #GrandCanyon #Arizona #Hiking #r2r #Geology [Image description: an unpaved trail with rocks lining the edges is ascending upwards through a series of vermillion colored cliffs. Higher up is an imposing cliff of beige colored sandstone with a blue sky overhead.] NPS/M.Quinn
