The Green Line

The green line is Indian Garden as seen from the south rim of the Grand Canyon.

Since it is Memorial day I am posting pictures of the Grand Canyon Cemetery where there is a memorial to the people who were killed when two passenger planes collided over the canyon in June of 1956.











The cemetery is located behind
The Shrine Of The Ages where
I took this picture. I didn't know
that the ray of sunshine was so
bright until I uploaded to my
computer.

A great tribute to innocents that perished on that day.

What a wonderful memorial. I also like the first image, with the green pulsating through the desert.

The Grand Canyon is awesome. I burst into tears and could hardly breathe the first time I saw it.

Well, each of these photos is important and beautiful. Love that first one. Re the 2nd, I got an email from a friend today who noted how the media fawns over people like Kim Kardashian, Charley Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, etc., but nary a word was said about the dozen or so Marines who lost their lives in war zones this week.

The canyon's breathtaking. The memorial and the shrine have a great poignancy to them.

Kathy said...

Nice memorial. I had no clue about this crash.

Nice pictures, Judy. I haven't been to the Canyon for a few years. Guess it's about time to go.
