Today we saw the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately when we got there, the view wasn't very good. There were four or five forest fires that were burning in the area, so the canyon was filled with smoke. As we drove to further stops we could see a little better though. A ranger said that the smoke looks really neat when the sun sets, so we decided to stay all day. When the sun set, it did look pretty neat. The colors were really brilliant, and the smoke turned a purple color.
