Grand Canyon of the Colorado and River
Stolid indeed is he who can front the awful scene and view its unearthly splendor of color and form without quaking knee or tremulous breath. An inferno, swathed in soft clestial fires; a whole chaotic under-world, just emptied of primeval floods and waiting for a new creative world; eluding all sense of perspective or dimension, defeating the faculty of measurement, putting ina maze all apprehension of limit; a terrible thing, unflinchingly real, yet spectral as a dream. The beholder is at first unimpressed by any detail; he is overwhelmed by the whole of the stupendous panorama, a thousand square miles in extent, that lies wholly beneath the eye, as if he stood upon a mountain peak instead of upon the level brink of a fearful chasm in the plateau, whose opposite shore is thirteen miles away. The Grand Canon is a labyrinth of huge architectural forms, endlessly varied in design, fretted with ornamental devices, festooned with lace-like webs formed of crumblings from the cliffs above and painted with every color known in pure, transparent tomes of marvelous delicacy.
Keegan's Trap Net Support.
The cables are anchored at each end, the slack being taken up by block and tackle. The support is gotten up for the purpose of holding trap nets on reefs and places where piling cannot be driven, but can also be used on any kind of a location.
At the end of the season, the piling can be taken up without much difficulty and placed on the beach in the vicinity of the location, where they can be scraped and painted or tarred, and used again for several seasons.
This is a great advantage, as, at the present time the life of a pile is about two years. Every ten feet on the web in the lead and hearts, a shove-down pole is made fast and from the bottom of the pole on each side a guy line leads down through a block at the foot of the pile, and is made fast ont he pile above high water. The shove-down pole is also made fast at the top to the cable.
At the corners of the hearts, pots and spillers, three piling are placed in position, so as to support the cross cables.
The weights and anchors can be made of boulders or any material having sufficient weight for the purpose. The weight of the anchors and foot weights, and the distance and spread of the piling, will depend upon the location and current
