14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Hole in the wall on Bright Angel trail on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon

I was on my honeymoon and started down into the Canyon on the Bright Angel trail. This image that seemed striking to me, of a lone tree on the canyon wall of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. You can see the hole through the canyon wall where the trail continues,spanning millions of years of history on earth as you hike further down into the canyon. One of the most beautiful places on earth I've ever been.
