One of my favorite places to visit is Bryce Canyon National Park in southern Utah. Its dramatic rock formations are unlike anything else on earth, and if you can get there, you should. The concept I am most drawn to about the park is that it was created in large part by erosion. Erosion is the process of being "worn down" or "worn away." It's often a slow and arduous process helped along during times of major weather events. Mostly, however, it's a bit of chipping here, a bit of cracking there as, over time, the true beauty the land reveals itself. Like nature itself is acting as a sculptor and creating wonderous works of art for all to see.
