Flying over Lake Mead and Grand Canyon
 
First time I went to the US was in 1994, as I'm scanning my old photos, I found these ones, interesting enough to be shared:

I hope one day I'll see it from the ground, IMO it's much more impressive.

Cool. Love the retro film scanning and I love the fractal patterns of some lakes from the air. Thanks Sandy.

The grand canyon looks awesome.

Thanks for the old skool pics. :)

And...yes....the Grand Canyon is much more impressive in person than in any photo or whatever....I had seen it in textbooks, online photos, magazines etc...then I went...and I saw... and OMG!!!! WOW!!!! :tup:

I have always wanted to see the grand canyon.

Very cool thanks for scanning those photos!

Great pics!!! If you were to fly over Lake Mead right now you would see a whole lot less of the lake. It's down over 100ft from the time these were taken... stupid drought.
