The Grand Canyon is a beautiful and powerful place but also a state of mind where Nature is alive deep within. To love Nature and the Earth is to love oneself and to love oneself is to love the Earth because we are Nature. We are the Earth. Pollution of the Earth, therefore, is a spiritual problem, a contamination of the human spirit first. If we are willing to contaminate our own mind and body then it is an easy step for us to contaminate our only home, the Earth.
