The Trail of Time recently won an Interpretive Media Award from the National Association for Interpretation. The trail, located on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park won first place in the Wayside Exhibit category. The category recognizes and promotes excellence in the delivery of nature, culture and historical interpretive services.
The Trail of Time path focuses on Grand Canyon vistas and rocks, and invites visitors to explore and learn about the magnitude of geologic time and the stories encoded in Grand Canyon’s rock layers and landscapes. Brass markers display the timeline every meter, representing one million years of time; and viewing tubes and other interpretive materials help visitors connect the rocks visible in the Grand Canyon to their place along the geologic timeline.
Well, from all of us at the Visitor Center, congratulations Trail of Time. You deserve it!
