u.l. printed: With the first view of the Canyon from El \ Tovar one turns over in his mind all the super- \ latives of his vocabulary in a vain effort to find \ a descriptive word that fits the scene. The \ futility of this is evident in a little while, and the \ observer settles down upon the rim to try to \ form in simple words his idea of what the Can- \ yon really is, and what it means, as it lies there \ in the sun, so big, so grand and so inspiring.
