Kathy and Craig Copeland (Utah Canyon country) say that "the difference between ascending a mountain and probing a canyon is the difference between the ego and the id. Attaining a summit is celebratory. "Wahoo!" you say, "We made it!" Standing in the recesses of a canyon is meditative. "Whoa" you whisper, "This is cool." The experience mirors the topography, of course. Mountains are the earth's extroverts. Canyons are their opposite, the introverts. (...) Mountains talk, canyons listen."
