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.
