Billowing clouds of smoke, flame-licked trees, houses abandoned ahead of the onrushing fire, brave firefighters plunging into the fray to fight the battle against chaos and destruction. Each summer it seems that the country is burning down - one huge forest at a time - and this summer is no exception. No sooner does the weather turn in Oregon than California erupts in flames. Last year, a record 8.4 million acres burned. The yearly average for the 1990s was 3.6 million. That's a total of 57,000 square miles for the decade - almost the size of the state of Georgia.

In size and impact - more physical even than visual - the Grand Canyon defies description. Everybody who has stood at its rim or floated the waters of the Colorado River, which carved it, knows forever its immensity. No one else can; it must be witnessed.It was one of the earliest natural wonders of North America to be visited by Europeans, apparently first by Spanish conquistadors 1540, 60 years before the discovery of Niagara Falls. But - extraordinarily - it took more than three centuries for it to begin to be appreciated.
