Every sundown, during the tourist season at the Grand Canyon, there is a ritual on the canyon rim. As the sun sinks, visitors take up station on the viewpoints. What they have assembled to see is the sunset light glowing on the canyon walls, and the higher points within the inner canyon. The crowd is subdued, though obviously appreciative. We hope the pictures leave you in no doubt that worldwide travel, to visit the most frequented tourist destination on the planet, is well worth the effort.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
