[Louie S. Muir]
[letterhead]Grand Canyon, June 7 1904Dear MamaI wish that you could have been with us this morning, as well sheltered from the wind and rain we lay under a large overhanging rock on the very rim of the Canyon and watched a thunder storm roar and flash. The Canyon is the most tremendous and astonishing place I have ever seen and to see it in a storm was unusual and glorious. It makes me feel week and helpless just to think of describing it so I won't try, you have to see it to have the least idea of what it is like and there isn't the least reason why you shouldn't see it for the rail road runs to the very rim.We are all very well and a very jolly party08549
