The Grand Canyon

I did a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. It was an incredible experience.

It's hard to express the magnitude of some things in photos, but being there in person sort of makes you aware of just how insignificant each of us is in the grand scheme of things.

My colleague from the Bahamas, there were five helicopters in total to carry the whole group.

Even in this arid place there were colourful flowers everywhere. And interesting plants of every description.

Then seeing the huge scars of bankrupt subdivisions carved in the desert reminded me that complete disrespect for our environment extends to all places on Earth; not just our beautiful little islands.
