"I think I can. I think I can. I think I can." -The Little Engine That Could

“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”

Benjamin Franklin

Over millions of years, the persistent energy of the Colorado River rushing through a gash in the Earth’s crust has created a spectacle and wonder of the world a little at a time.  

While geologists argue over how the Grand Canyon was formed, there is consensus that the Colorado River is a major factor.  The heat of the desert bakes the soil, making it hard and unable to absorb water.  Plants with shallow roots do little to hold soil in place.  When it rains, water has no place to go but down to the river, and it takes soil with it, sometimes in the form of boulders the size of cars, which are washed away by the flooding river.  Or at least that’s the basic idea…

You can do it.  Just keep after it.
