Owner Terry Etherton said: I am especially pleased to help commemorate this important milestone and help bring attention to the Grand Canyon National Park’s “unique natural, cultural and historic resources,” with the photographs of Jack Dykinga. Jack Dykinga has built a career on using photography to advocate for the protection and conservation of wild spaces all over the world.

After 100 years, whether its hiking a corridor trail, taking a stroll on the rim or enjoying the landscape from an overlook, the Grand Canyon continues to provide a space for all visitors to connect with the outdoors.
