I was surrounded by pine forest and snow-capped mountains, but I longed for deserts, red rocks, and canyons—and the Grand Canyon represented all of that. In my mind, it was the ultimate metaphor for America: Oversized, unapologetic, aspirational, and truly, mind-blowingly epic.

Grattis på födelsedagen, Grand Canyon National Park! Hoppas du finns kvar i 100 år till.
