Don't Fall, Grand Canyon
Be careful! Make sure you have good shoes and watch where you are walking. There are people every year who slip and fall while trying to take photos or are just trying to get a little bit closer to the edge. We have been lucky so far that the canyon is very accessible and not surrounded by a chain link fence!
Don't fall off the edge! Note for Americans: this is not Disneyland. There are no safety barriers or nets. If you get too close to the edge, you will fall off and die. At least ten people a year do, apparently.
Keep hold of young children. This may seem like stating the obvious but we actually saw a stupid woman just open the car door and let two little kids aged about 7 and 9 just run to the edge ahead of her.
It is a bit obvious really but you will be surprised how many people don't - stay away from the edge and don't attempt rock-climbing.
It's a long way down.
What photograph can do it justice?
But I tried I tried.
God its AWESOME !
Building a fence around the Grand Canyon would ruin the view. Nobody wants that, and so there is no fence. So watch your step, especially if you go in the winter like I did.
