Awe-Inspiring 1872 Photo of the Grand Canyon

This is a very old, 1872, photo of Grand Canyon in Arizona. Way off in the distance is a man sitting on the ledge (near the left). That is John Hiller, an American government photographer. He was originally from Germany, arriving in the United States in 1852. Read more about his interesting background on Wikipedia.
