Every time I see Grand Canyon I can't avoid thinking about those sci-fi movies where you can see some alien landscapes. Grand Canyon is indeed something specific, it is an unique part of the nature.
There you can find some really unusual shapes which indeed look like they're not from Earth.
It is one of the places which I certainly would like to see personally but I am pretty sure that I will never visit it.
John Miranda has been one of those who had luck to visit the Grand Canyon. The following photos are took by him while he was hiking there from the South Rim to the North Rim. Miranda has years of experience in hiking in Grand Canyon and those photos were originating in last few years while he was visiting Grand Canyon.
