French Student completes the American Experience in Style at Grand Canyon – AKA @AdrianaVecc

From Landscapes and wildlife to history and adventure, what’s the one thing about the Grand Canyon that has intrigued you?

The landscape is fascinating. These vibrant red, yellow and green shades, with a purple and blue mist in the morning. Also the Canyon remains untouched by men, this is a wonderful experience to lose yourself there.

A camera, without a doubt! There are so many things to see, I did not have time to lay my eyes on anything else than the landscapes!

What surprised you about the Grand Canyon?

I was surprised how far the horizon goes and the different colors. I expected it to be red/orange and dry, whereas there are many different angles, different kinds of flora. From sunrise to sunset, the Grand Canyon offers many changing views.
