Grand Canyon: 4K Majesty

Grand Canyon: 4K Majesty

We can’t get enough nature porn, so we’re happy that Dan Brown spent 12 days floating in the Grand Canyon and brought enough batteries to keep 3 time lapse cameras clicking away the entire time. It feels good to feel small in the universe, doesn’t it?
