Geography is Contagious

As a landmark, the Grand Canyon astonishing, and as a park, it’s delightful.

One of its exhibits explains that the Canyon was formed by the Colorado River, which collects sediments from the Rocky Mountains, and uses them to cut through the rock like “liquid sandpaper!” What helpful imagery!

The park also features spouts along the trail that provide cold spring water–for free! Isn’t that courteous? It was warm out, so I went through a lot of it.

…and promptly developed a sore throat.

…and now I’m worried that I unwittingly drank Colorado River water, and it’s gonna carve a canyon outta me.
