ATG Quirkies: Love Letters to the Grand Canyon

by | Mar 13, 2019 | 0 comments

If you were listening to “All things Considered” a couple of weeks ago, you probably heard about the Hikers Who were Composing Love Notes To The Grand Canyon 


NPR reports that “for three days at the end of 2017 and early 2018, a number of visitors to the Grand Canyon “encountered something unusual after a 6-mile hike down to a scenic overlook: a $5 typewriter from Goodwill and a note.

Dear Hiker, welcome to Plateau Point. You’ve hiked a long ways. Please take a seat in the chair and relax. Look around. Take it all in. What does this moment mean to you?
