Ongtupqa 


It means "Grand Canyon" in Hopi...

Is there a big enough word for this place?

I saw a fellow trying to steal some rocks from this formation.
He stopped when he saw I was watching him.
He pooh poohed the fact he did not get it by saying something like, "Oh, I didn't want it anyway."
I said, "...and not just because it's a federal offense?" 

Another angle

Aloe?
