The Grand Canyon is quite spectacular. The last time I was there was about eight years ago. I think it has been argued as one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Upon checking The Google and The Wikipedia, it seems there is some debate over the wonders of the world depending on if we are talking ancient times, engineering, modern era, underwater or clueless blondes – all are considered quite the wonder. Regardless, imagine my surprise when I encountered one of the great wonders of the world right here in my home town of Boulder, Colorado.
I was at The Med. I was trying to focus on the conversation with my party. But how does one ignore the grand canyon in all her glory(hole)? Colorado certainly does have vast wide open spaces, butt this was unexpected in what is considered a modern hip place in an urban environment. With such a large and exposed crevice gaping at the clientele, I couldn’t believe there weren’t ropes or some kind of protective fencing barricading the fluctuating crack. The surface area shifted often which caused the large expanse to widen and lengthen to startling degrees.
Although I am native to Boulder, I fell into tourist mode and had to snap a picture. I would have posed in front of the amazing wonder but I didn’t want to disturb the wildlife. Plus I was afraid I might accidentally fall in. It would take hours to find me down there.
The nice thing about it was that the bar area got pretty crowded and people were able to nestle their pint glasses in the wide crevice in lieu of table space. Of course now and then a cocktail would slide all the way down and be lost forever, butt my guess is that’s the point of the whole thing anyway.
The Med is a real crack up.
