Last Friday, The Daily Post chose Endurance for the weekly photo challenge. Endurance can be seen in so many different things and in so many different ways. I’ve had a pretty long and tiring week with lots of work on my plate and grading up to my eyeballs to complete so endurance is a pretty significant theme for me this week!
The example The Daily Post shared was of a Mayan ruin and spoke about how ruins such as that one have weathered the test of time. I have seen a few ruins myself, but wanted to go with something a little bit different. I went to Las Vegas during spring break of 2013 for a few days and no my example of endurance isn’t being able to stay up all night at the club and casino! My friend and I went on a day excursion to the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately, since it was only a day trip and is a few hours from Vegas, our time at the Grand Canyon was limited. However, it was still amazing to get to experience the sight with my own eyes. I chose this image because the Grand Canyon was formed by the Colorado River millions of years ago. Over time the river carved it’s way through all this rock and land, slowly eroded the land, and lifted up plateaus. I don’t really know how long it took, but I imagine it took a long time considering how massive the Grand Canyon is. Talk about endurance!
